Shinsegae's Historic Flagship Department Store in Myeongdong

Myeongdong Shinsegae Department Store

신세계백화점 명동점

Shinsegae's flagship department store in Myeongdong is actually located on the site of what was once Korea's first department store, the Japanese Misreukkosi Department Store, which opened all the way back in the 1930's. Shinsegae took over the site and renovated the original building and also built a towering new department store next to it which were opened together in 2005. It's quickly become one of the most popular department stores in the area, drawing thousands of shoppers each day to its wide variety of name brand clothes, accessories, cosmetics, as well as the store's numerous amenities and a massive Duty-Free Shop that stocks some serious high-end luxury brands and other goods. 

 

A number of services and amenities are available to customers, such as a stroller rental, personal lockers, translation services, a foreigner customer service center, and a repair center. The store also boasts an incredible rooftop, complete with a peaceful green garden lined with modern sculptures; a sort of oasis in the middle of one of Seoul's busiest areas. There are also a number of restaurants and cafes for hungry and tired shoppers to relax at. Even if you don't have money to spend, the Shinsegae Department Store's main building is an incredible example of Japanese colonial-era architecture, one of the few still standing, and is quite the site to behold for any history buffs.
