As one of Shanghai’s most famous retail districts, more and more top international brands such as Topshop are choosing to open stores on Huaihai Road. This trend will certainly help the city to promote its ‘Shopping in Shanghai’ brand.” Ellen Wei, Head of Retail at JLL Shanghai, China Landlord Representation Lead
