Winter sales 2023
In Belgium, a trader can only sell products under the name 'sales' ('solden' in Dutch, 'soldes' in French) twice a year. Both periods of sales are determined by law. The winter sales of 2023 will start on Tuesday 3 January.
Those sales are the seasonal renewal of the range of the trader. This is done through an accelerated selling at lower product prices.

Waiting period before sales
Before the start of the sales there is a waiting period. During this waiting period, it is legally prohibited by law to have sales in the clothing, footwear and leather sector.
If the starting date is on a Sunday, the bargains may start the day before.
