Dashang Group Launches Digital shopping APP Tiangou Net, Making It Easier to Shop
SHENYANG, China, July 12, 2018 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/ --

In late June this year, the China General Chamber of Commerce has released 
China's top 100 retailers in 2017. Dashang Group was in top three, just behind 
Tmall and JD. Being the largest department store group in Northeast China, 
Dashang Group has launched Tiangou Net, a digital shopping APP that attempts to 
make shopping easier.

When you go shopping in northern China, you can easily find a parking space 
through the APP in many cities. If you are not satisfied with the price of the 
selected clothes, you can upload a fitting photo to the APP to receive 
occassional price reduction messages in the future. Shop assistants will take 
pictures or videos of various interesting scenes and products in the store, so 
that you won't miss your favorite products. With artificial intelligence, you 
can also talk to a robot shopping guide in the shopping mall to get all the 
information you want to know. 

Dashang Group has more than 400 department stores and shops in more than 80 
large and medium-sized cities over 15 provinces. Its Tiangou Net transforms 
traditional department stores into  future department stores. From 2014 to 
2017, Tiangou Net had achieved 30 billion yuan in transactions with more than 
10 million users, making Tiangou Net one of China's top e-commerce enterprises. 

In the first half of 2018, Tiangou Net continued to enjoy rapid growth, 
realizing electronic member transactions of 20 billion yuan. Among the 
transactions, 2.5 billion yuan was paid via Tiangou Net. 

Unlike Tmall and JD, Tiangou Net is committed to promoting in-depth integration 
of the traditional grocery industry and the Internet. Tiangou Net's mission is 
to help tens of thousands of department stores in China become future 
department stores, which has been recognized and praised by the Ministry of 
Commerce of the People's Republic of China (MOFCOM).

Liu Sijun, president of Dashang Group, says that Dashang Group and Tiangou Net 
will transform traditional business and accelerate entity business revolution 
through comprehensively building a digital and intelligent e-commerce platform 
and promoting the technological innovation of big data flow ecosystem. 

Founded in 1995, Dashang Group has always believed in "our products must be the 
best". The faith also drives Dashang Group to look for the best-quality 
products around the world and try to bring them into China's huge market and 
provide them to hundreds of millions of Chinese consumers. Dashang Group has 
already brought Australian Wagyu, Black Augus, cherries and apples from 
Tasmania, French wine from Chateau Largo and German beer into China.

Niu Gang, Chairman of the Board, says that Dashang Group hopes to bring more 
high-quality goods in the future and provide more considerate, comfortable and 
convenient services to Chinese consumers.
