The “Mac Arthur Glen” and “Marques City” Centres are located in la Zone Industrielle de Pont Sainte Marie [the Pont Sainte Marie Industrial Estate].
The “Marques Avenue” Centre is situated on the Dijon road in Saint Julien les Villas.

Each of these centres has information booths that will allow you to better find your bearings among the different shops. Onsite you will be able to receive a small brochure which includes information about the brands and access maps to the shops. The brochures are available in our “downloading” section.
The web magazine TroyesMagUsine.com, lists all of the shops and brands available in Troyes. The shopkeepers of the centres therefore supply this site with information, which is verified before being put on line. The site is updated every day.
