As one of the first cities to open its doors to the West in 1979, and with the added advantage of being right next to Hong Kong, Shenzhen has some great department stores and there are some good bargains to be had here. Hong Kong residents make regular trips up to Shenzhen to do shopping, and electric goods are a particularly good buy. Shenzhen actually leads some of the consumption trends on the mainland and the latest fashions, and products from Hong Kong and Guangzhou are readily available throughout the city. Electronic and electric appliances, clocks and watches, jewelry and leather are all good buys.
There are four main commercial districts within Shenzhen city. The area around the railway station is particularly good for clothes. The district between Shanghai Hotel and Seg Electronics Co. mainly sells electric appliances, which are a particularly good bargain here. If it is smaller commodities that you are after, try the streets around Dong Men and Old District.
Famous-brand products from clothes to cosmetics are available in the flashy department stores such as Xiwu Department store and the International Commercial Market along the roads between Shenzhen Grand Theater and Renmin (People's) Bridge. Zhongying Jie (Boundary Street) in the Shatoujiao District is another good place to purchase quality products. There are a few overseas stores in the downtown area, such as Carrefour, Makro and Trust Mart. Wal Mart, the American supermarket chain, also has a branch downtown.
Dongjie is a famous pedestrian shopping precinct in Shenzhen, where the areca trees and tasteful wooden benches in the central square add to it an exotic touch. Here one may experience supreme ease of shopping for the broadest diversity of goods at the lowest price. This commodity prosperity is founded on the economic strength of the city. Shenzhen has an export economy. Its export value has ranked first in the country for eight successive years. In 2000 its export value reached US $34.6 billion.
