Like many wise consumers, you have wisely chosen to wait for certain periods of good business. To make your Christmas gifts for example! Sales are still a long way off, but there is another short fall promotion period, favourable to very advantageous purchases. And where to make all your desires come true, if not the capital of fashion and shopping ? Experience the experience of the Black Friday in Paris !

Black Friday: origins and appropriation

The concept

Black Friday, which can literally be translated as “Black Friday”, refers to a sales day that takes place across the Atlantic every fourth Friday in November, the day after the famous Thanksgiving holiday.
Originally, American workers took a day off in the 1950s and, according to the press, they used the main “black” roads to reach their weekend destination. Thereafter, Black Friday echoed the purchases of the day after Thanksgiving, which made it possible to turn the accounts into positive and induce their writing in black ink.
From the 1970s onwards, American businesses began to use the term Black Friday to describe the kick-off of Christmas shopping. Many brands took advantage of this event to boost their sales by offering considerable discounts.

French version of Black Friday

The first French-style Black Friday was held in 2013, a first edition that was actually a little timid. The following year, major retailers such as Fnac, La Redoute and Auchan decided to participate in this day where discounts were plentiful.
And the turnover of this event has only increased in seven years. Let’s bet that this will continue in 2019 with ever more attractive discounts. This year, Black Friday is held on November 29th, it is a great opportunity to renew your wardrobe, find trendy accessories or upgrade your electronic equipment at a lower cost.

The Black Friday in Paris

There is nothing like the capital and its countless shops to make the most of this exceptional sales period. We do not use the term “day”. Indeed, most brands promote promotions from the Monday preceding Black Friday to the Monday following it.
No doubt you will take advantage of it to buy Christmas gifts for your loved ones or to make other Christmas Eve purchases, such as decorative items and some of the foods for the meal.
On the one hand, we suggest you make a stopover at Le Bon Marché. Not far from our hotel, it has the advantage of having many shops.
On the other hand, you are likely to find your happiness in the streets surrounding our establishment. You will discover many ready-to-wear boutiques on Saint-Dominique Street.
