    This used to be a symbol of Xujiahui due to its relatively long-life and top-class goods. Its establishment in the early 1990s earmarked the beginning of Xujiahui’s prosperity. But as more and more shopping malls opened up around it, the store became less popular. However, it still claims to offer the best selection of gifts.

    Here you can buy food, cosmetics, bags, jewelry, watches, glasses, gifts, wines, cigars, clothes and home appliances, and one-third of all goods are imported. If you’re looking for something pricey and of good quality, shop here!
