  2. I'm thinking not, especially in a country where everything seems to be negotiable. ;)

    1. I don't really enjoy negotiation when buying things. I always get tired real fast hahaha. Maybe this is a fixed price store - but the sale amount is still miserable.

    2. I just arrived back home after a week in Beijing. It seems that discount is the other way. So 30% discount is said as 7折 (off) .

      Hence the sign really says 92% discount! They must have been Google translating or Wechat translate and just paste.
