Mark your calendar, girls. Next Wednesday, January 9 is the beginning of “les soldes” – the big sales season that only happens twice a year in France. I already have plans to do some lunching and shopping with a girlfriend on that day. The one perk of being a freelancer and not having to be with the hordes of people on the weekend!
Les soldes is from January 9 to February 12. Discounts become greater as the end of the sales approaches, however, there’ll be less inventory. And if you’re planning a summer visit to Paris – keep in mind the summer sales will be from June 29 to July 30, 2013.
