The department store was opened in September 1955 under the name of Wangfujing Department Store(王府井百货商店). It changed to its present name in July 1968.[citation needed] In the 1970s an office building and a warehouse were built and annexed to the main building.

The store offers a wide range of merchandise very similar to an American department store.[1][2]
