HÀ NỘI — There is only one week left until the Lunar New Year (Tết), and people’s shopping needs are increasing. To attract customers, fashion stores in Hà Nội have launched many tempting promotions.

At the end of the year, fashion stores rush to release goods to recover capital after a year of fighting the pandemic; goods range from only a few tens of thousands of Vietnamese đồng to hundreds of thousands.

There are signs of discounts and sales everywhere at the end of the year. Clothing stores are crowded and parking lots are full, especially on weekends. Many have to park on the road and wait.

After buying a shirt with a discount of 69,000 VNĐ (3 USD) and a winter shirt with a 30% discount, a customer says that Tết It was the perfect time to hunt around because of the big discounts.

After Tết, stores are gradually shifting to selling summer clothes, so many winter clothes have been reduced, so shopping at this time can save a lot, she added.

Shoe stores also attract a lot of customers, especially children’s shoe stores. However, buying at the end of the year can be difficult because even if the prices are reduced, the correct sizes may no longer be available.

Holding bags from many different fashion brands, Đoàn Thị Thu Trâm, told the Bao Giao Thong (Transportation) that she had purchased three items costing less than VNĐ 1 million. Even though they were discounted and the designs weren’t the latest, she still chose quality products. —VNS
