It has been announced that the January Sales will begin on all the Canary Islands on 8th January. The single date breaks with tradition, given that in the past some of the islands have chosen different starting days for their annual sales, in some cases leaving several days between the end of Reyes (6th January) and the beginning of the Sales to force shoppers to exchange unwanted goods at higher prices.

The Sales will last until 7th March. The Department of Trade and Industry has also set the dates for the Summer Sales, which run this year from 12th July until 11th September.
