Chen Hao Furniture Closing Sale
Chen Hao Furniture has been given notice to move. The whole row of stores along Tian Bei Lu will be demolished in the coming months. They hope to be up and running in a new Shunyi location next month. In the meantime, they are having a clearance sale across the majority of their furniture stock. Beautiful hand-made items of furniture, including chairs, tables, consoles, and beds, plus a good selection of lamps. The owner assured me the new location would be bigger and better, with a significantly larger furniture making workshop on-site.
