An upstart fashion shop decides to become a departmental store. In the process the neighbourhood crumbles, succumbing just as consumption takes the toll.
Amazing insight into the mechanics of a super store, promotions, finances, lives of the employees. The many tactics used to retain customers aren't very different from any of those visible today, including the distance orders. Since it is Zola, the central character isn't highborn but pulling herself up from the absolute bottom, yes a lady. The

A novel that studies the conception of the French department store in the mid-1800's. The surrounding shops can't compete and die out, both figuratively and literally. The heroine is a young salesgirl who captures the heart of the owner, who had wanted to "conquer" women by luring them into his shop. Lots of description of cloth, clothes and buildings.
