Sales in Germany
Sales in Germany are specially organized events that are held by retail outlets with the aim of selling seasonal goods. Seasonal sales in Germany start with discounts of at least 30%. First, discounts go on goods of certain brands, and then on goods of all manufacturers. In the middle of the season, the cost of goods decreases by 50%. Closer to the end of the sale, discounts are up to 90%. The best purchases can be made in February or August. During the winter sale period, clothing discounts are 30% in December and 70% in January. Some stores offer discounts as early as November. In January, they are already selling the remnants of the collections. In the summer, sellers begin to cut prices in July..
Features of German stores
Sales start with sales of budget brands. Then they move on to designer and mono-brand boutiques. For shopping to be profitable, you should go to various shopping centers and boutiques. While shopping, tourists use tax-free - a VAT refund service, which is relevant for people living outside the European Union. All shopping centers in Germany issue a refund document. Thus, at the airport, the traveler can get back 10-14.5% of the purchase amount. The purchase amount must not be less than 25 euros.
Many tourists prefer to go to Munich during the sales period in Germany. The most profitable shopping is possible there from November to February. But already in January, the choice of goods is very small, since the main influx of buyers has been observed earlier. During the discount season, Düsseldorf becomes one of the most popular German cities. There is a large number of boutiques and shops where famous European brands are represented. Excellent conditions for shoppers are created in the shopping centers of Hamburg, Berlin, Frankfurt and Dresden.
