SOME of the first summer sale dates have been published by départements in France, which free up regulations on the discounting of stock for businesses.
The sale period is limited to twice a year and can only run for a maximum of six weeks, for example the Pas de Calais region has sales running from June 25 until August 2.
Anything that you buy in the sales has exactly the same guarantee as a normal item and the previous price must be clearly marked.
