France’s summer sales are underway as you read this, and it’s a good time for you to clinch that bag/shoe you’ve been eyeing since earlier this year. As the country only offers two major sales every year (one in summer, another in winter), the bargains are major with retailers slashing prices on current merch in order to clear out the stock for the new season.
The sales last between five to six weeks, and prices drop accordingly. This summer, the sale period commenced on 27 June and will end on August 7. While you can wait it out for further drop in prices (only by 20-30%), we suggest to score that above-mentioned bag/shoes in case it gets snapped up by other shoppers.
Brands that are currently offering price reductions include low- to mid-range fashion labels, along with luxury brands such as Givenchy, Chloé and Balenciaga.
To shop any of these sales, just follow these steps:
- Sign in/up, go to your France wishlist and add anything you want to it.
- Name your order, and hit the Submit Order button.
- You’ll be assigned a Boxer (Personal Shopper) in the France who will shop across stores for you and consolidate everything into one box.
