Yi De Rd - wholesale shopping experience!
Yi De Lu and areas near Yi De Lu is where you will find many, Many wholesale malls and shops. Yi De Lu is famous for its stationeries and gifts wholesale market. There are at least 6 shopping complexes, some 6 storeys high, all selling stationeries, decors, toys, gifts etc etc. If it's your first time there, I guarantee you that you'll be overwhelmed! You will!
Again, as I mentioned about shopping in wholesale markets, they usually sell in bulk and bargaining power is not on your side. If you just want to buy one or two, their retail price would be much higher than wholesale price or they may not even want to entertain you. Of course, if you are really going to buy in bulk for businesses, aha, you'll be spoilt with choices. Many of the shops sells similar things and so you are able to compare prices.
Not only that, there is also a dried seafood wholesale market along the road.
Behind Yi De Lu, there's also a major shoe wholesale market.
And near to Yi De Lu, the Tai Kang Lu, I spotted a wholesale mall (Tai Kang Cheng) that sells all the girls accessories like crunchies, hair clips, necklaces, beads, belts etc etc. And beside this mall is another wholesale market that sells all those toilets parts like pipes, bathtub, toiletbowls etc.
I can't describe enough, go see it for yourself! The photo shows one of the aircon stationery mall at Yi De Lu. Stationeries, keychains, soft toys, purses, decors, clocks, etc etc They transact only in cash. So bring enough cash.
