Mascots set up shop in Lyon

Coincidence of timing: the day after the French Alps presented their bid for the 2030 Winter Games, the Paris 2024 OCOG announced on Wednesday November 8 the opening of two official stores in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. They are located in and around the city of Lyon. The first opened on November 2 at Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport. This 55 m² boutique offers around thirty official products in clothing and caps, plus some sixty items in giftware, small souvenirs and accessories. The second, of identical size, opened its doors on Wednesday November 8 in the Westfield La Part Dieu shopping center in downtown Lyon. The shelves feature almost 200 official Paris 2024 items, including licensed collections developed by Le Coq Sportif and Vuarnet.
