The Government decided to prohibit sales between December 25th and January 9th, in order to limit travel and avoid the crowding of consumers in commercial establishments.

"Between December 25, 2021 and January 9, 2022, commercial practices with a price reduction are prohibited in establishments", reads the extraordinary statement from the Council of Ministers.

In addition to the ban on sales, the Government has decreed that the deadline for returns and exchanges will be extended. "The period for the exercise of rights attributed to the consumer that ends between December 26 and January 9, or within ten days after that period, is extended until January 31, 2022".
