The Alderwomen for Economic Affairs at Brussels City Council, Marion Lemesre, announced that parking will be free in the centre of Brussels for two days, January 3rd and January 7th. This is during the launch of the January sales.
During the first day and the first Saturday of the sales, the MR alderwomen said, “Customers with their own transport will not have to use the pay-and-display ticket machine within the Pentagon area.”
Furthermore, a special sales ticket will be available with the SNCB.
As a bonus, on January 3rd, concerts and activities will take place in the capital’s shopping streets. Finally, shops will be open on January 8th in Brussels city Centre.
Marion Lemesre stresses, “In the ordinary run of things, shops are open in Brussels on the first Sunday of every month, as part of the campaign ‘I Shop on First Sundays.’ Given that this January 1st falls on a Sunday, I have decided, in conjunction with traders, to make an exception and postpone Sunday trading.”
