Arriving in the city in July of 2009, Beijing’s Scitech Outlet Mall is located within the prestigious villa area of xianjiang in the North road of the Chaoyang District. It is the preferred shopping destination for premium brands at discounted prices.
Fashion’s biggest names, including Armani, Bally, Burberry, Coach, Dunhill, Ermenegildo Zegna, Max Mara, Nine West and Zegna, have all settled in this area, which possesses a charming boutique stores in an immense new outdoor village with authentic Colonial, Victorian, and Classical architecture – the first of its kind in China. The ambiance in this shopping area is a comparatively relaxed.
To top it all off, the outlet’s pricing policy of a 40 percent minimum discount is a recessionista’s dream. We love the Bally high-heeled boots (down to 4,490RMB from 8,974RMB); a great investment piece. Throw on a classic Burberry trench coat (down to 6,480RMB from 16,200RMB) and the look is complete.
The guys aren’t left out either, with bargains here such as a dapper Dunhill navy velvet blazers at half price (8,075RMB) while a Ports International trench-style jacket, originally 4,299RMB, is now 1,720RMB. Cheaper options can be found at this well-stocked Levi’s store.
A pair of ladies’ dark-washed straight-leg jeans used to be 799RMB, but are now sellingat 240RMB, while the men’s darkwashed and lightly whiskered jeans were 899RMB, but are now 270RMB. More altruistic shoppers should head to Coach to stock up on small holiday gifts. Two wooden racks are home to a huge assortment of adorable keychain charms that are 350RMB each.
With over 5,000 parking spots, a free shuttle bus from Scitech Plaza, and a subway station due to open on Line 10 next year, makes shopping and saving up on extra cash fairly easy at this shopping mall.
