When is the best time to go shopping?

Postby Marianitar » Sun Aug 24, 2014 10:14 am

Hi!

I've been in different Countries and noticed that most of them have different "on sale" seasons, for example, Black Friday, president's day, Columbus Day or the days after Christmas in the US; august and September in Costa Rica because of the "cierre fiscal", june in Nicaragua (not sure why), summer clothing sale in Spain... What's the biggest discount season in Peru? Do they also have a Black Friday? Do stores lower prices every season or just a couple times a year?

I'll be most grateful if you could give me some info, I know everything is as cheap as it gets in "polvos azules" but I'll prefer to go to Ripley or Saga because of the warranty and safety to buy electronics and to get right size clothing.

NOW seems like a good time. All major stores have sales. I asked "until when", to which they answered "hasta agotar stock".

I would say the best sales for clothes are at the end of each season. Grocery stores usually have staples on sale at the end of the month (and sometimes around the 15th) because it is when people get paid.

Electronics and goods tend to be on sale for fiestas patrias and before Christmas - conveniently the two months when Peruvians receive their grati (the months when they receive double salary).
