Sales in New York
The biggest sales in New York are in the winter and summer, as well as in the few days before big holidays, such as Independence Day on July 4th, Labor Day (Labor Day) – the first weekend of September, February 14th, Easter, Day Memorial Day – the last weekend of May. The biggest sales in New York take place in the period before Thanksgiving Day (Thanksgiving Day) – the fourth Thursday of November, and up to the new year. But the most anticipated, grandiose discounts happen on the famous “Black Friday” – Black Friday, the Friday following Thanksgiving. With the “black Friday” begins the season of winter discounts, which lasts until mid-January. At the same time, on the eve of New Year’s Eve, from December 25, the discounts may already be 50% of the original price, and from January 2 – all 80%.
Dates of summer sales in New York are not defined – the stores announce the season sale sporadically, but the sales last almost the whole summer: by going shopping in summer New York, you are guaranteed not to be left without a bargain.
Shopaholic note: if you are buying a sufficiently large number of things in one place at a time, you can ask for a discount – in any store. Most likely, you will be given a 10-15% discount on the total value of things. You can also ask about the availability of special tourist discounts – the so-called tourist discount.
How to buy in New York?
For guests of New York who have only a couple of days, we would recommend to take a shopping tour of the best shops in the city. You can buy such a tour, for example, in the agency Shop Gotham. Many shops that tourists visit during this kind of excursion make tourists good discounts. If the amount of purchase of one client will be equal to $ 1,000 or exceed it, the agency undertakes to return to him the amount spent on the purchase of a shop tour.
Firstly, the “Tax Free” system operates in many retail outlets of the city.
Secondly, the sizes of clothes and shoes in America do not coincide with those adopted in Europe, therefore, it is advisable to try on a thing before buying it, or to study the size system adopted in the United States and compare it with the European or Russian one.
I would like to tell tourists about the undoubted advantages of the New York Pass tourist card, which will become an indispensable companion to your shopping trips. For example, in Bloomingdale’s and Macy`s, the owners of such a card have a discount of 11%. They can also be advised to visit the Century 21 shopping center, where you can get wonderful discounts at all – at 40% -70%. In some stores, New York Pass cardholders are entitled to a small surprise gift. If you buy a large number of things, or the thing is rather expensive, do not forget to ask for a discount for tourists with a sweet smile (tourist discount). Most likely, the sellers are happy to go to meet you. In any case, if the seller sees your extreme interest in the product, he can offer you a discount. Naturally, within its competence.
