The South Street of Nantong, located on the Nantong’s downtown area, runs for 420 meters from South Huancheng Road to Middle Renmin Road. The people in Nantong are used to simply calling it “South Street”.  Zhang Jian, the Chinese national industrialist, designed it as a normal street in the early days of the city. Unexpectedly, its commercial culture, facilitated by his descendants, became rich and colorful. The South Street of Nantong now is home to a large number of stores on both sides, including Five-star Electrical Appliance, Golden Eagle International, Wenfeng Great World and the Department Store. In addition, the Baxiancheng business street and the RT-mart are located to its northeast. The South Street business circle, for these reasons, has long been regarded as a “must” for shopping.
