Do Balenciaga stores authenticate?

Does anybody know: If you buy a bag (on ebay for instance) will a Balenciaga store/stand in a department store authenticate said bag if you bring it in?

Thanks!

From my experience, Balenciaga does not provide an authentication service and recommends you purchase from their boutiques. There's a lot of specific knowledge required to authenticate a Balenciaga bag and that's not a skill needed in the boutiques to sell new bags. I would think some oldies & super fakes could confuse Sale Assistants with limited experience with the brand.

You can get a free authentication from the dedicated members of this forum here:
