Summer Sale is On! June 24th- July 28th, 2009

Soldes d'Eté

The bi-annual French sale is beginning in Paris, sub-urbs and other areas on June 24th, 2009 and will last till July 28th, 2009. Some departments (other than in Ile-de-France) may have a different sale period. The 'Sale' is applicable to items available at participating retailers/ hypermarkets- from household goods to electronics, clothes to shoes, bags and accessories, everything is up for grabs at discounted prices. Even on-line stores participate in this Sale to liquidate their stocks.

 

This is a genuine sale where retailers are allowed to sell below the marked prices and at prices that cut on their profits. There are increasingly higher discounts for items not sold as the Sale progresses. However, seasoned buyers like to procure the items they fancy before waiting for a futher 'démarque' or discount and risk disappearance of the said object from the shelves altogether!

 

Approved by the French department for regulation of competition and monopolies, DGCCRF- Direction Général de la Concurrence, de la Consommation et de la Répression des Fraudes, the 'Sale' is held each year in Summer (June end-July) and Winter (Jan-Feb) for a period of 5 weeks.The dates may vary depending on the department.
