We like the sales because the prices are reduced. Sometimes they have special offers. You can buy one and get one free. The best sales in the Ukarainne are in January and also on Mother's day. The discounts are between 5% and 25%.

In Bangladesh we never have sales of discounts.

The best time for sales in South Africa is from January to mid February. Usually the discount is around 25%

Oh, I hate crowds and bargains. First of all, I hate big cities like Tokyo, New York, or London. I like quiet, calm countryside, and do my shopping in a quiet, less people around shop. I'm not interested in cheaper prices, I don't mind paying a little bit more money if I can do shoppin in a quiet circumstance.

Hi guys,
I came to participate in your company

Hi, my name is Mohamed Salah, i am from Egypt. In Egypt the period that there is large sales in various shops and brands is the black Friday, there is very large discounts on various products like clothes, electronics, ... etc.
Due to the economical status of the country that it is reflected on the people, a lot of people wait this day to buy what they need with lowest costs. the shops are being very crowded on that day. So i think that making discount is very good idea either for consumer or the seller, bet i wish to say that shops should increase the period of the sale to a week, not only two days.

Hi! My name's Hanh. To me, the day of the sales is not important for me. I only buy something if necessary. In my country, the shop usually have sales in December- the final month of the year. In this time, there are a lot of people go to the shops and buy the cheap cloths. The street is so crowd, so I don't like to go out this times.

hi I am fatema from Jordan
I like the sales so I can buy my needed with a suitable price
I think in sales we spend a lot of money to got a good bargain
in our country the sales on January for winter and in September for summer

Hello! My name is Yulia. I am from Russia, from Siberia. I am a doctor, but I can not spend a lot of money. I like shopping. Many people in my country like discounts and sales. During the sale we by a lot of things, which we do not need. As, a result we spend loads of money !

Hay, I like sales but sometimes sales make us spend money out of budget. Especially for women who love shopping very much , please be careful with your wallet and credit card. Keep rational so you can buy only the thing that you really need not just because it prices is cheap. Because based on my experience, i bought a lot of t-shirt in sales last month but until now i just wear 1 or 2 t-shirt. I think it's kind of wasting our resources (money).

I think, alot of people like discount or sales, so do i. But i dont like crowd, i don't like push each other. So anyway that's my opinion.

In our Country very popular second hand shops because new cloths are expensive for general.
