In Singapore, there are two major discount seasons called GSS (Great Singapore Sale), which can be simply seen as a discount at the end of the season. The sale off time is divided into 2 main seasons, namely summer and winter. The summer discount happens between June and August with the biggest is from July to August. Meanwhile, winter sale begins from December to February, of which the sharpest falls at Christmas and in January. During these two sale seasons, the majority of products will be reduced by 50 - 70%.
