Via AsiaPundit we learn some breaking news: It has been confirmed where Xiangyang Market will move once it it officially shut down on June 30. Where? Online of course. Visit xymarket.cn for all your fake goods needs. Here’s what Pacific Epoch wrote about the site:
Shanghai’s famous flea market Xiangyang Market is scheduled to close this summer, but value shoppers can now find the market online. China Telecom’s Shanghai portal Shanghai Online recently opened an online Xiangyang market. The new website is similar to C2C sites Taobao and eBay Eachnet and allows individual sellers to open their own online Xiangyang Market store. The online Xiangyang Market encourages sellers to avoid selling fake goods. Shanghai Online’s website for its Xiangyang Market is available at Xiangyanglu.sh.online.cn. For buyers looking for fake goods, Xiangyang Market has another website at http://www.xymarket.cn/ The website offers a full range of LV bags and Northface jackets priced in USD and accepts payment by Paypal, Paypal China, Alipay, and various domestic bank cards.
I will bet the “Xianyang” site selling counterfeit goods will be offline within the next few months. China has been cracking down on such sites and Xiangyang is just too well known to continue.
Regardless, if you are in Shanghai and you are buyingyour fake goods online, you are either under house arrest, stupid, or very, very lazy. Want fake goods in Shanghai? Walk out of your apartment and look left (or right). They are everywhere.
