This is your chance to snatch some real bargains! It inly happens twice a year, but this is the last time the sales last for six weeks. Let us explain…
The area around our hotels eis the perfect base for getting the most of the Paris sales, with the big name chain stores down boulevard Saint-Michel, the designer clothes of Saint-Germain and the smart Le Bon Marché department store all near by (the latter will be open specially early and late on the first day of the sales – from 9am to 8.45pm!).
The sales are hte only time of the year when stores are allowed to sell at a loss, and everything sold at a reduced price must have been in stock and available to be for at least a month (no shipping in lots of old stock and pretending it’s at a reduced price).
While this year’s summer sales last six weeks – from 26th June until 6th August – the dates will be changing, starting with the next sale period this winter, in January 2020. Instead os lasting six weeks, the sales period will be reduced to four.
So if you don’t find the bargain you’re looking for in the summer sales, you’ll have to wait patiently until 8th January 2020 (and nab it within four weeks!).
