City for Shopping
Sales in France are state-regulated,and retail discounts are allowed only twice yearly,during two six-week periods known simply as Les Soldes(The Sales).Winter Sales run from early January through mid-February,and the summer Sales extend from late June through July.Because discounts are rare and limited,expect Parisian shops to be extremely crowded and chaotic during these times,especially on Fridays and Saturdays.Most stores are closed on Sundays.Crowds tend to lighten as the weeks go by,but so does the stock of discounted goods.Specific sales dates change by year–a quick internet search will let you know when to visit if you want to be first in line,or what dates to avoid if you prefer a quieter,less-frenzied shopping experience.
