Make the most of the good deals and reductions, mainly concerning fashion (clothes, shoes, accessories), but also effecting house clothes and thousands of other items.

The sales can not last longer than six weeks in any period. In Paris, each period lasts a month and they come about in winter and summer amid a tumultuous atmosphere. In the sales period, stores may open on Sundays.

Make the most of shopping, you should also take a walk through the markets (covered, open, organic…) and through the passageways and galleries where you could find a rare pearl in the heart of Paris.
