"The Bon Marché, whose name has a multiple meaning of "a good deal", "a good walk" or "a good market", was the name chosen for a department store launched in Seattle, Washington, United States, in 1890 by the Nordhoff family. The name comes from Le Bon Marché, a noted Paris retailer and one of the world's first department stores, founded 40 years earlier."

  -> bon marché=a good deal/a bargain (at least in Québec)//in other words, CHEAP.//Since you didn't bother to read my link above, I've copy-pasted the main parts for you. See above.

neutral  Juan Jacob: Well, yes, but what's your suggetion? Bargain or Bon Marché as a store name?

  -> If it were the name of the store, it would be capitalized. According to the asker, it's a poster advertising something, and we don't know any more than that.

cheap prices for the month

It is an advertisement and a heading. acheter au bon marché is no doubt to buy cheap; of course the accent must be added.
Differnt to get a bargain which is -faire une affaire
