Winter sales – prepare to shop
Just as in most French cities, the winter sales in Paris began on Wednesday, January 11th, 2017. These highly anticipated sales are an excellent opportunity to shop for home décor and furnishings, clothing and accessories and you can hunt for bargains until Tuesday, February 21st, 2017. The main shopping streets such as boulevard Haussman, rue de Rivoli and Forum des Halles will certainly be busy but the profusion of good deals will offset the rush of the first few days. Serious shoppers will have spotted their most coveted items beforehand. For home decoration, leisure or gastronomy, try the Bercy Village shopping centre in the 12th arrondissement. It also has many bars and restaurants where you can stop for a relaxing break in the middle of a busy day. You can also visit the Italie 2 shopping centre in the 13th arrondissement, a less well-known but equally good site that’s home to many major brands including Printemps, Longchamp, Mango, Comptoir des Cotonniers etc.
