Sales in Paris

Sales in Paris

Sales which are called in French Soldes  are state-regulated in France and generally run during two periods of the year:

  - once in summer around summer day and La Fête de la Musique
 - and once in January, shortly following New Year’s day.


Sales last six weeks and prices are gradually slashed over the course of the sales period. Every shop, department stores, boutiques, designer outlets clear out items from the previous season.




 The 2013 summer sales will begin June 26 and last until July 30, 2013


 The 2014 winter sales in Paris will start January 8 to end February 11, 2014. 



A great occasion to visit Paris and shop… Get ready with our Paris shopping guide



Enjoy les Soldes!!

I've never attended the Paris soldes. Is engaging a personal shopper a good idea? If so, any suggestions?

I would like to confirm the date of the 2013 Paris Summer Sale? I notice it always starts on a Wednesday, which for 2013 will be June 26. But you posted June 29 which is a Saturday. Is this the official and final start date of the sale? June 29 Saturday? Thank you

Our 2011 trip was around the time the Paris sales begun. The 21st was the Music Festival and the following day, Wednesday, the 22nd of June 2011 was the first day of sale. I can say from my experience was almost all the stores were on sale. Parisiennes, tourists, foreigners etc. were all over busy with shopping not minding the queues. I would advise anyone to be there a few days before the date to have a look and try on whatever you would like to buy on sale. There will be more choices if one goes early rather than wait till it's almost over.
