Belgium postpones sales period to August
The fashion sector has been asking for a while to postpone sales in order to make up for the losses caused by shops closing down during the coronavirus lockdown.
Shops have been allowed to reopen from 11 May, and now have the chance to sell their collections at normal prices before the sales period starts. “The postponement of the sales will allow traders to better manage their stocks,” Denis Ducarme, Minister for the Middle Class, told De Standaard. ■
