Boucicaut is a station on line 8 of the Paris Métro.

The station was opened on 27 July 1937 as part of the extension of line 8 from La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle to Balard. The station is named after Aristide Boucicaut, who opened Le Bon Marché, sometimes considered the world's first department store. His second wife assisted Louis Pasteur and founded the Boucicaut Hospital near the station.
