About this place

This department store is stuck in the 1980s, where saleswomen wear blue uniforms and count with abacuses. Dafang has been around since 1979 and everything is the same as it was 30 years ago--décor, goods, pricees and standard Beijinghua. Old-timers come from as far as Tongzhou for bottles of six kuai skin cream. Even if you’re not buying anything, Dafang is worth a visit for a peek into Beijing in the 1980s.
