Paris Sales Shopping
Scandal! Remember? I told you the rules regarding sales (soldes) were extremely strict in France (only twice a year, from a fixed date to another, etc.). Now, the government has decided that there would be two more approved weeks for sales, at the convenience of shop owners, and a lot of them have chosen to use their additional 2 weeks now. Of course, like most attempts to change things in France, this new measure is widely criticized, especially by the French Garment Association. About the photo, needless to say that this shop is way past the soldes (by) date, as it is closed for good. Precisely why I like it!
