Our Insiders' Article


When you are looking for cheap prices, there is just no beating the Paris winter sales 2016. During the period between January 6 to February 16, the huge majority of the stores in France will offer sweet deals to the shopping fans. Prices can go as low as 70% off the regular prices! So if you are looking for a new sweater, a new pair of jeans or a nice spring jacket, the Paris winter sales is the time to head to your favorite brand and treat yourself! You'll regret not seizing the opportunity.

Pros and Cons

Low prices are definitely a must when it comes to encouraging people to buy, but how will you cope with the crowd? Indeed, on the first week of the Paris winter sales, a period when all the products and sizes are still available, all the shopaholics head out to the main department stores (Printemps, Galeries Lafayette, BHV/Marais, Le Bon Marché, Beaugrenelle etc.) to satisfy their thirst for looks. It gets really busy, but as they say, you snooze, you lose!

Here are 2 pieces of advice: be patient and be quick!

Useful Tips

  • Prepare for the sales before the sales: do all your research and fitting a day or two prior to the first day of the Paris winter sales 2016. It will save you a lot of time and patience!
  • Select the places you want to go to: there are many shopping areas in Paris, all with their different style and specialties. You can't do them all in one day.
  • Choose the best time to save time: although parisians sometimes take a day off work to enjoy the "Soldes", you are less likely to have to muscle your way through a dense crowd on a weekday, preferable at lunchtime or in the morning.
  • Dress intelligently to undress quickly: you don't want to spend ages in the fitting rooms untying those countless laces or pealing off too many layers. Efficiency is the key.
  • Make sure to buy the right item: yes! treat yourself to nice clothes and shoes but know that many shops will not accept returns or exchanges.
  • Take a risk: if you are really looking for cheap prices, hit the stores at the end of the Paris Winter Sales 2016. The remaining items will be heavily discounted. But will you find something you like?


The sales occur twice a year (winter and summer) and each sales period lasts 6 weeks. They are used by the shops and departments stores to quickly sell the remaining merchandise in stock. These goods must have been on display for a at least a month in order to sell them at discounted prices, and depending on the stock, these goods can even be sold below cost. It is therefore the best period to buy what you need as prices are the lowest during this period.
