Bottom price tags are further slashed by more than half courtesy of Aegean's grand opening promotions, which are continued today for final day. Be sure to buy the 92.8 for 200cny vouchers on-site (outside behind Starbucks) in the afternoon at 4pm. There will probably be a line so arrive early. Weipinhui is located on the B1 level.
The compounded bargain surpasses most 11/11 online sales I've witnessed in recent years.
Thanks for your vouching herenow. Let us know how this new "outlets town" fare.
DanDare, I'm just a thrifty, keen shopper whose initial urge upon discovering tidbits on bargain opportunities around town is to share them with the expat community here.
Call it my intrinsic camaraderie among foreigners residing in Kunming. With added propensity to beating the locals at their own retail game, despite their upper hand in language.
Almost all local Kunminger I encounter are incognizant of grand opening or anniversary sales events scattered in their own backyard. For me it's like an Easter egg hunt.
Most locals I come across are either unknowing of these hidden eggs, or just don't mind being the overpaying consumers who appear to have money to burn.
However, for more frugal expats who lack the wherewithal yet limited in the shopping avenues due to language proficiency disadvantages, and to some extent even unfairly duped, my satisfaction comes when that gap is bridged.
I am a firm believer of penny saved is a penny earned, be it buying a croissant or a condo.
For those who live near the Dianchi area looking for things to do this upcoming National Day holidays, Wangfujing will open Kunming's first outlet there tomorrow.
It will be called 王府井滇池小镇, aka "Wangfujing Outlets Town" in English.
Numerous name-brand retail and athletic stores will hold a one day 90% off （一折）sale.
The grand opening festivities starts tomorrow (Saturday, September 28, 2019) to kick off the weekend heading into the Golden Week break.
Search for "王府井滇池小镇" (wang fu jing dian chi xiao zhen) in your WeChat mini program to get event and location details.
A new WeiPinHui store is opening tomorrow at the grand opening of Aegean Shopping Mall (爱琴海购物中心公园) on Baiyun Road No. 168.
Same location where Alibaba's Hema Supermarket previously opened in advance.
Today is the last day you can purchase online the 200yuan Aegean shopping voucher for only 92.8yuan on Dianping:
Other avenues of 92.8 for 200yuan pre-purchases were available on Aegean's WeChat official account (not sure if still available). As well as China Merchants Bank app (or 掌上生活 app) for similar 50%-off dining vouchers at Aegean tomorrow.
So for 200rmb kicks at WeiPinHui, you only pay $92.8. Quite the bargain worth checking out if you're a bargain hunter like myself.
