  • The last Street has the best stores, prices are not the lowest but in stores would be much larger, however only 12 parts and wholesale with ID. If you are in a group is legal, but with few people ends up being a day lost, because it is quite tiring and long term demand.

  • I've been on the street José Paulino just didn't have time to get to know the other. There is a plethora of shops, mainly clothes, for all tastes. I noticed that most of them don't allow try the clothes, because the specialty is the sale to shopkeeper. Even so I managed to buy some parts, The prices are good and there's variety. It is close to the Light station of the subway.

  • Neighborhood of Bom Retiro brings together approximately 1000 clothing stores, being the best known Street José Paulino. Almost all shops are of women's fashion. For those who've never been out shopping, I gather the main tips that I got from the web and that we used successfully: 1) preparation: list what you want to buy and how much to spend-are hundreds of stores and that makes it easier to identify the distance potential places of interest; 2) payment: most shops only accepts cash or debit payment. Some plots on credit or grant the discount; 3) what to wear: it is a very tiring ride and there's nothing glamorous-use comfortable shoes and tights (the vast majority of shops has no provider or just allow proved above). I'd say 30% of them do not allow any evidence (I suggest then take clothes known to compare size); Sun block (don't trust the weather forecast they never hit); 4) promotions: many stores let macaws with promotional pieces (which do not allow return) in front to draw attention (usually with some sort of defect parts). These payment in cash. For every item purchased, especially the promos, look at every detail of the play and don't let the girl get her out of your field of view (so you exchange the part you chose); 5) wholesale and retail prices: some stores only sell wholesale by CNPJ registration from a certain amount; other to individual conditioning to a minimum of some parts. There are stores that only sell wholesale during the week and retail to fds; 6) security: on Saturday we were policing in every block. As the safe than sorry, hint that works very well is carry a backpack on his chest (never in the back) with all their belongings, documents, money and cell phone-don't take anything in your pockets). Never leave shopping packages away from you (even if the clerk is kind enough to want to store them while you purchase); 7) parking: on the street you to blue zone only if you arrive too early (before the shops open). Parking charge of 10 to 15 reais to time. If you have a little more resources, do as I did: we stayed at the hotel Luz Plaza, just 3 minutes walk from José Paulino. We left the car in vallet (which is complimentary) the 8:30 on a Saturday, we went shopping on the way back we did check in the 2:00 pm (230.00 daily); 8) If you are not of Sao Paulo, when a saleswoman ask your origin, say that is São Paulo (so coibe any attitude to take advantage, as for example delivering a defective part, knowing that you won't be back). Stores that buy and display: Suná: jumpsuit and blouse; owner is the stylist and a super saleswoman; Landie: Coral Chic blouse: Monkey and blouse; Range: short jeans and jeans; Enzo: t-shirt and blouse Kanaka: blaser and t-shirt Talita Kum: wide despite having almost no men's store, recommend Adji and Summary for poles of good quality and price. The price difference is significant, since you search enough. I hope I helped. If you like it, give a like!
