Winter sales 2021

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. Due to the coronavirus measures, the winter sales of 2021 will exceptionally start on Monday 4 January 2021.

Those sales are the seasonal renewal of the range of the trader. This is done through an accelerated selling at lower product prices.

The 2021 winter sales take place from 4 to 31 January 2021.

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.
