While many women's apparel stores offer items on sale, few are like Ziyunxie, which only offers discount women's apparel. You may buy most clothes here for 30% to 50% off normal prices.
I visited its outlet near the Jishuitan subway station, curious to see what bargains they had. Inside, I found some garments displayed at the center of the store, while others hung on the racks by the walls.
The merchandise at the center of the store included sweaters, short jeans, and scarves. All priced from RMB 50 to RMB 150 after discount. The helpful shop owner said that most of the merchandise come from Guangzhou. She recommended me a pair of Mickey jeans priced at RMB 50.
As for apparels displayed on the walls, I saw coats, jackets, sweaters, jeans, and skirts. I picked out a cardigan in light blue priced at RMB 108, made of soft materials including caddice and wool. The stitching is good
Prices for cotton sweaters ranged from RMB 100 to RMB 500, while other items were around RMB 50 to RMB 300 after discounts. For most items at Ziyunxie are much cheaper than that of similar items in department stores.
