The whirlwind of Christmas is over, and the NYE hangover has finally worn off, which can only mean one thing – it’s time for the Paris winter sales to start! (see below for the exact dates)
Paris is probably the best place in the world to find a real designer bargain, and our hotels are the perfect base for a madcap shopping spree or two, with designer boutiques all around us and the wonderful Bon Marché department store not far.
This is the only time of year (apart from the summer sales, of course) when stores are allowed to sell at a loss, and it’s strictly limited to six weeks (although that may soon be reduced to four weeks).
So, here are the dates. The Paris winter sales start at 8am on Wednesday 9th January 2019 and finish on Tuesday 18th February 2019. These dates also apply to websites that ship to France.
Also, you may not know that it’s forbidden for shops to get stock in specially to sell it at a discount. All goods must have been in stock for at least a month before the sales start (otherwise, there’s a fine of up to 75,000€). This helps guarantee that real bargains are on offer!
