Happily for you, your visit coincides with the official summer sale period ("les soldes"). There will be bargains in all sorts of nice stores.

For most of France, the summer sales period this year is from June 30th to August 3rd. If you are in Paris during this period, there will be bargain shopping. Otherwise retail prices are rather strictly controlled by the government.

If you are a serious shopper, there is a book called "Paris pas Cher", generally widely available, which you may find useful.
