In Italy there are two times a year for big “sales”, well known in italian as “saldi“.
The summer sales are just begun at the beginning of July and in Rome they are a great opportunity so save big on clothing.
But it’s advisable to consider some tips about summer sales:
First, it’s best to shop around and compare prices, beacuse some shops dishonestly rise their “regular” priice during this period and then apply the discount, although fortunately this cases are more rare because the controls are greater.
Ask before to buy about the return policy, in fact some shops don’t even let you return anything during sales period.
If you want, try asking and additional discount, this is really difficult to obtain in big shops but in the smaller, sometimes it’s possible to be able to obtain it, overall in this period.
