Les Soldes By Paris Vs Paris Sunday Shopping

  • Pin it

While everyone (and their dog) goes on and on about the worldwide economic crisis, the fashion industry continues its retail benefices completely and absolutely untroubled. The semi annual sales still make every fashionista’s delight!

The Paris sales, however, are a bit different this year. And not just because this year Lou Doillon was the sales ambassador. It’s because the overwhelming importance of the Soldes By Paris are slightly shadowed by politics. Because politicians do not agree with the majority of French population over Sunday shopping, postponing indefinitely that long awaited moment to extend Sunday openings.

If you’re a France resident, do you think Sunday openings are more important than the sales? And if you’re not a France resident, imagine yourself a tourist in Paris, on a Sunday, when everything’s closed. How would you feel then? (via wwd)

Like home LOL! Its the same in the Netherlands…..there are some shopping Sundays over the year but I do never know when they and have never attend any. To be honest, I like it, no shoppings on Sunday. Just enjoy that day for other things.
And our Christian parties insist on the Sunday as a day of rest.

Here in Canada we have Sunday shopping. It works for some I guess. But as long as the museums and art galleries are still open on Sundays in Paris, I will be fine. : )
