The period of validity of Christmas catalogs from large retailers ends this weekend. If the toy you are looking for is no longer on the shelves, can you still order it?

The giveaway race has begun. One only had to walk around the main shopping centers in the region on Saturday afternoon to notice it. To help their customers make their purchases, a majority of stores are even open this Sunday, December 4, but also on December 11 and 18.

The prices printed in the catalogs are guaranteed until the expiry date of the catalog. Not after. Nothing prevents a brand from changing its prices by Christmas even if all the large retailers do not do so. In 2021, for example, the magic braid Barbie had seen its price increase by 30% on average as Christmas approached.

Once the validity period is over, if you cannot find the toy you are looking for, it is still possible to order it. “If the product is available, the customer will be able to order it”, explains an Auchan spokesperson to The Dispatch. “Please note, however, that each year certain ‘star’ products may run out and in this case, ordering is generally not possible”.

Large retailers usually launch new toy promotions a few days before Christmas. Waiting for this period may be at your own risk. Very often the star toys are no longer available. The promotions then relate to the toys still on the shelf, not those that make the most children dream.
