The 2013 summer sales in France start june 26

Updated on August 31, 2014

As many savvy shoppers will know, France holds two major sales a year, one in the summer and one in the fall. The good news for those who wait in earnest for these sales is that the 2013 summer sales are just around the corner. The sales, beginning on june 26th running until july 30th will allow shoppers all of the brand names at bargain prices that they’ve come to expect from these sales.

The planned dates will be followed except if there are legislative changes within the range of the sale. There are stores that have set their own sale dates for summer such as

  • Alpes-Maritimes and Pyrénées-Orientales : Sales will start july 3 to end august 6, 2013
  • Corse : Sales will start july 10 th to end august 13 th, 2013
  • Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon : Sales will start july 17 th to end august 20 th, 2013
  • La Guadeloupe : Sales will start september 1st to end november 13 th, 2013
  • Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin : Sales will start october 12 th to end november 15 th, 2013
  • La Martinique and French Guiana : Sales will start october 3 th to end november 6 th, 2013
  • La Réunion : Sales will start september 7 th to end october 11 th, 2013

Everything that one would normally purchase from clothes, to shoes, to skin care to furniture is on sale and ready to be fought over. Naturally, with such exquisite merchandise dangled in front of shoppers at such bargain prices, things sell quickly and it is imperative that shoppers aiming to pick up good finds at good prices be completely prepared to navigate stealthily through the sales.

Shoppers plague stores in the days leading up to the sales to spot merchandise to hunt the sales for and trying on pieces of clothing to ensure they can easily grab the right size without having to waste time in the dressing room. When you do go to the stores on the day of the sales, make sure to wear something that is easy to move in and change in and out of if you do end up having to try things on. Quite often, you may end up running around stores or price comparing between two different stores; making heels a definite faux-pas on sale days.

Sales seasons don’t keep solid sales prices from beginning to end, either. The more sales weeks go on and the closer it comes to the end of sales time, the more sales get slashed. Most shoppers wait until the mid-point or just before to go make the majority of their purchases. This time is perfect because the prices are low enough to save a fortune yet not so low that the merchandise on the floors are picked over.

What if you can’t make it to France for the sales but you must be a part of them somehow? Just another perk of being connected online, is specialized websites that have stores involved in the sales and their offerings of discounted merchandise. These sites are definitely resources to use but don’t have the same spectrum of stores or amounts of merchandise on them. Stock on these websites is often limited and they are not replenished as emphasis and importance is placed on physical sales floors. And most importantly, most stores don’t ship outside of France. Keep abreast of your favorite stores and keep your eyes on your favorite pieces!
