Do you enjoy shopping in Paris, one of the biggest fashion capital in the world? Perhaps you are fan of luxury products but have a limited budget, then you need to take a look of this article about outlet shopping in Paris.
Around 35 minutes from Paris and 5 minutes from Disneyland Parks, La Vallée Village is a commercial center in the form of a “village” which gathers more than 110 luxury and fashion brands. This is a great place for outlet shopping in Paris under a relatively reasonable budget.
For example, you can find Armani, Guess, Kenzo, Longchamp, Mickael Kors, Sandro, Zadig&Voltaire, Burberry, Marni, Calvin Klein, Superdry etc. The concept is simple: all the shops offer more than 30% of discount for all the products, except for the new collection. In fact, all the shops there sell their collections of the previous year. So, it is true that you may not always find your size of clothes, shoes. In this case, be patient and visit another shop, I am sure that you will find some wonderful goods.
After your arrival, you can go to the welcome office to get a map of the Vallée Village. Hence i twill be easier for you to know the locations of the shops in which you are interested. When you make a purchase of more than €175 in a La Vallée Village boutique, you can ask for the tax-free procedures at the cash desk.
We suggest you spending no more than a morning or an afternoon in the village because it is not so big. Moreover, there are not many choices for meals on account of the number of restaurants in the Vallée Village. In fact, technically there are just one French high-class fast food restaurant, Prêt-à-manger and a Starbucks. Therefore, you can also walk for around 10 minutes to the commercial center “Val d’Europe” just beside.
It is possible to obtain a VIP card, including coupons of -10% discount in 6 shops chosen by yourself.
Since the items cost already much lower than other places, these coupons offer you an additional reduction. In order to get that VIP card, you can contact a travel agency for more information.
