girls love to stroll in the Clothing Market near Beijing Zoo, and they have a
lot of funs in bargaining for beautiful clothes! As long as you pay substantial
attention, you can also select out some fashionable but inexpensive clothes. Why
not seize the opportunity of seeking cheap and fashionable clothes? Everyone
knows how to buy clothes, but it is not an easy thing to buy beautiful clothes
with limited money and have unlimited funs. Here, we recommend nine clothing
leftover stock markets in Beijing where there are abundant goods at a price
between RMB 2 yuan to RMB 50 yuan!
1. Tianlantian GOGO Clothing Leftover Stock Market
A signboard, on which it reads “At the price of RMB 2-50 yuan, numerous clothes are ready for you!”,, hangs beside the Lize Bridge Long Distance Bus Station at the northeast corner of Lize Bridge. There Tianlantian GOGO Clothing Leftover Stock Market is! There are two floors in the market, and each of the two floors has an area of about 10,000 square meters; and more than 700 merchants do business there from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The clothes there are not very new, and most of them have been hung outside in order. The market is not significantly different from ordinary clothing markets, but most of clothes are short in size, and the number for each variety is not so large, and for some varieties, maybe only one is left. They are displayed almost as “exhibits”. Almost all customers passing-by touch them so that they do not look very new. An article at the price of RMB 50 yuan would not be considered inexpensive there. In the market, sweaters, down coats, overcoats, long-sleeved knitted underclothes and pants are being sold. As introduced by merchants, if clothing factories produce more clothes and they have gained enough profits from clothes sold, they will sell the leftover stock to merchants in the market at a very low price. So the prices there are very low: a set of children’s garment only sells at RMB 10 yuan, a piece of hoody at RMB 13 yuan, and you can buy two pieces of reversible cotton clothing at RMB 50 yuan.
The environment inside the market is very clean and the passages are very broad, so it is even more spacious than Guanyuan Wholesale Market and Vantone Wholesale Market. Merchants are adorned with special passes, on which the name and photo of a merchant are shown. Now and then, a loud voice from the loudspeaker in the market reminds merchants not to occupy the passages with cardboard cases or other things. Besides, safety inspectors are patrolling about.

Colorful banners used to promote the leftover stock market hang on the streetlight poles along both sides of roads in the residence community. They boast of their low price: “Clothes/Leftover Stock at RMB 2-25 yuan.”

3. Dongsishitiao Foreign Trade Goods Street
White-collar workers like to go shopping there as they prefer fashionable clothes. Nearly one hundred small shops are located along the south and north sides of Dongsishitiao Street and most of the shop names contain “Foreign trade”. Every shop there, occupying an area of ten square meters or so, has their own characteristics.
Most clothes being sold there are the leftover stock
from factories, or purchased from wholesale markets at whole sale. However,
there are also well-known brands, such as e.land. The shop owners say that there
are not many such clothes and most of their goods are the leftover stock for
“foreign orders” of factories, so they sell at a very low price. The unit price
for sweaters is RMB 15 yuan, and that for 啊pair of women trousers is RMB 35
yuan…the clothes there are not very expensive.

6. Bairongtianhai International Trade Mall
If you seek carefully, you can get many bargains: RMB 35 yuan for a leftover down coat, RMB 10 yuan for one pair of trousers, RMB 5 yuan for a cap. However, not all clothes are leftover stock from factories there, and quite a number of merchants there are wholesalers. As clothing stalls selling such cheap clothes are scattered among wholesalers, they are not very conspicuous. One seller of fashionable women pants says that most of the clothes being sold there are of inferior brands, but there are also shops selling well-known brands, such as ONLY.
The environment there is clean. Floors and moving staircases are cleaned by sanitation workers now and then. However, if you spend a long time there, you will feel the air is somewhat stagnant since there lack windows. On the first floor, mainly men’s clothings are sold; and on the second floor, mainly women’s clothings are sold. Yet, there are quite a few shops not rented out, which are either locked or used as a “warehouse” with clothes stored but no keeper.
Popularity: Among customers there, there are wholesalers also engaged in clothing business and salaried persons, most of whom are middle-aged women; and there are also young lovers with low wages. Some people buy several pieces of clothings at one time and leave with several packs. One customer says that her house is nearby, and she comes over for a look; as the market is not well managed now, so she will come again some time later. Another customer says that the quality of clothings there is not bad, but the number of stalls there is too small --Nearly half of shops on the second floor remain closed.
Route: The market is located at Muxiyuan along the 3rd South Ring Road, and you can take Bus 627, 954, 973, or 736 etc. to reach there.
