But recently many people in Shenzhen found that differentiated the two markets have been gradually reduced, a “shopping paradise”, Hong Kong no longer seems to be our only choice.

Miss He had many such experiences. She told reporters that some time ago, she asked her relatives in Shanghai to buy Canon S95 camera, which camera stores in Shenzhen, the price is 2980 yuan, the thought that the price of Hong Kong, where do not provide china free shipping “is definitely cheaper,” but only to find in Hong Kong “is not the case . ” Gathering in electronic products, Mong Kok, Miss Ho found the prices here actually sold HK 3480, but also can not counter-offer. “Even if the exchange rate multiplied by eight discount for each purchase, the price is almost too pretty and Shenzhen, Hong Kong has not yet counted up the traffic to meals too!” About the shopping experience, Miss Ho address him “too uneconomical.”

With this experience, Miss Ho began to “long eye,” and not blindly go to Hong Kong to buy things.

Now greatly sought-for example, “apple”, the latest MAC AIR ultra-thin notebook computers, the highest price of the configured version of more than 9,800 Hong Kong dollars in Hong Kong, and Shenzhen in the delay of a few months after the listing, the price even further up to more than 12,000 yuan , a difference of several thousand dollars; another iPhone phone, iPad, and other products, the price gap is not small.

Industry, Choi Lai Choi told reporters that Miss Chan Photography boss, the price of electronic products in Shenzhen than in Hong Kong is indeed low down, as in his shop, Nikon D90 kit price of 6,850 yuan, 2,580 yuan price of the Canon S95, the price certainly cheaper than in Hong Kong . The reason, he said that China as an emerging market, the market consumption increased year after year, more and more attention by the manufacturers. International electronic brands such as Sony, Nikon and so important to China as its target market, starting many new products are located in China. The vendors are happy to reduce prices to expand the mainland market.

He therefore suggested that when consumers buy China electronics, the first clear understanding of the Mainland price, be aware of after, and then compare the prices of Hong Kong to see whether it is worth buying to take home.
