A new census of Parisian businesses was carried out in April 2011 on the initiative of the City of Paris, the Parisian Delegation of the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIP) and Apur.

Over 61000 trading and commercial service businesses were counted, a figure which reveals a high commercial density, especially in comparison with the centres of large provincial cities or with the centre of London.

This census has brought to light the changes in the commercial fabric since 2007, which was the date of the previous census. There has been a very slight decrease in the number of businesses (0.4% p.a.) due mainly to an increase of their size onto adjoining premises. The number of establishments active in the health and care sector has gone up significantly. The same is true of fast food outlets and Asian restaurants. Minimarkets continue to spread.  The number of wholesale businesses, located in certain central and eastern districts of Paris, has gone down, including in the Sedaine-Popincourt area where until recently they had been on the increase. There has been some reduction in the sectors of furniture and household goods and certain businesses connected to culture and leisure pursuits.

François Mohrt, Studies Manager at Apur, was a guest on 12/13 Paris Île-de-France  on Thursday 10th May 2012. He  spoke about the developments of commerce in Paris, notably in the personal care sector.
