One day we went to a mall to eat. We thought I needed shoes so we bought some really nice Columbia walking shoes for a 1/4 of the price that we would have paid at MEC in Vancouver.
On our way out I saw a China National Football jersey. I examined it and told my mom I wanted it and lucky for me, she said yes, she would bargain for it.
My mom is a big negotiator. Originally, the shop keeper said the price was 360RMB. My mom bargained hard and it sounded like she was fighting with the shopkeeper. This way of bargaining is common. you need to work hard to get the best price. My mom’s starting offer was 40RMB and she bargained down the original price to 90RMB. That’s about $15 Canadian dollars. I think that’s a really good deal.
It was a good thing for me because the shorts come for free if you buy the shirt.
After we bought the jersey kit we walked right by the Workers Stadium which is where the Beijing soccer team plays.
The Workers Stadium is bigger than B.C. place!The Workers Stadium also holds more people! The next soccer game is September 24th and unfortunately I will no longer be in Beijing. I really hope that I can go to a soccer game in Chengdu.
