Hefei to Host Nat'l New Year Shopping Fair

Date: 2012-12-13

The 3rd Chinese New Year Shopping Fair will run from December 25 to February 9, 2013 in Luyang district of Hefei, capital of East China's Anhui province.

During that period, consumers can go to five venues including the Huaihe Road Vehicle-Free Promenade and the Ladies' Street to buy goods for the upcoming Chinese New Year, known as Spring Festival.

"China General Chamber of Commerce, the initiator of the fair, chooses one well-known business street from across the country every year as the host," an official who is responsible for this year's fair said.

The Huaihe Road Vehicle-Free Promenade was officially recognized as China's Famous Business Street in September, which made it possible for the street to serve as the main venue of the event.

Not only can local residents do Spring Festival shopping in that street, but also they can view historical and cultural exhibitions as well as a variety of shows. It will be more tempting that many retailers along the Huaihe Road will offer a minimum discount of 40 percent during the New Year shopping spree, according to the source.

The street is blessed with renowned cultural attractions such as the former residence for Li Hongzhang, a leading statesman of the late Qing Empire known for his pro-modern stance, the Mingjiao Temple and the Drum Tower.

In addition, the Ladies' Street, the Doubanhui Vehicle-Free Promenade, the RT-Mart Plaza and the Mingfa Plaza were designated as sub-venues of the fair.(source:www.cnanhui.org )
