Ukrainian Shopping Lifehacks
In Ukraine there are no settled or regular bargain sales – it depends on the store or market. The discounts may be provided on account of any holiday in a city or town.
You can bargain at the market but it stands on the situation. Many salesmen include the discount in the price that is why you may not know which price was to be expected.
Often the bargain sales happen after the holidays or at the end of the season when they need to sale the items unsold during the season. You should be attentive to see the advertisement for discounts – it can be shown in a very unexpected place. Often the markets do not work on Monday, and on the weekends the time of closing maybe earlier.
