Galeries Lafayette / Winter Sales 2020

As from now, you can configure your discounts by providing the dates on which your sales offers starts and ends so that Galeries Lafayette can prepare the merchandising.

At Galeries Lafayette, prior to the "Sales" are the "Avant-Premières Soldes" reserved for account holders GL.com (sale price-private).

For Sale period, you must send the team Galeries Lafayette the list of participating products (EAN) (through the matrix sent by email by Galeries Lafayette) the 1st of January, 2020 at the latest, as well as your catalogue including on sales products the 3rd of January at the latest.

This allows the Marketplace team to verify that everything is set up for D-Day and to accompany you if necessary.

For more information, do not hesitate to contact your Galeries Lafayette account manager.
