When Grenelle was a suburban village, the rue du Commerce was its primary major business street. Even though the Grenelle village has since 1860, been incorporated into Paris's 15th Arrondissment it still retains a genuine small town high street feel.
The street starts at La Motte-Picquet Grenelle and ends at St John the Baptist Church 675 metres later.
