Wal-Mart Haicang Store, the first Wal-Mart store outside Xiamen Island opened on 19th April.
 
Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, opened its tenth outlet in Xiamen on 19th April, reports Xiamen Daily.

Located in the A Luohai City Square (海投大摩•阿罗海城市广场), the first high-end shopping center outside Xiamen Island, the Wal-Mart Haicang Store is the first Wal-Mart store outside Xiamen Island, aiming to boost economic development in the district.

The Wal-Mart Haicang Store offers free shuttle busses operating on 5 routes in the city for customers, almost covering all areas in Haicang District.

Meanwhile, Rainbow Shopping Mall will open its first outlet in Haicang District during the First Xiamen (Haicang) Shopping Festival, which will be its largest one in the city.

Starbucks Corp, the world's biggest coffee-shop chain, will open its first store outside Xiamen Island in the city square as well.

As the nearest district to Xiamen Island, Haicang District has its own regional advantages and aims at building itself into a key port area in Haixi Economic Zone (the west side of the Taiwan Strait).

Instead of the chemical industry, Haicang District is attaching more importance to the development of environment-friendly industries including biomedical, oil business and cultural and creative industry.
