Opened in May 2016 in Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Y.M.C. Seoul is the third store in the world following Y.M.C. UK and Y.M.C. London. The brand Y.M.C. was unveiled in 1995 with a uniquely new sportswear design combining workwear, soccer fan fashion, military look, and traditional costumes. Y.M.C. is short for “You Must Create,” and it pursues the brand philosophy of one creating his or her own style instead of following fashion. Products mainly consist of functional design items such as clothing, bags, and shoes for men and women. In keeping with the brand slogan, Y.M.C. is more about unique design products than trend-sensitive items. The store space spans two floors: the first floor with the main entrance and exit and a showroom, and the base room. The showroom on the first floor displays new products representing the Y.M.C. brand. This is where customers can find all products by Y.M.C. The basement, which is decorated with a small indoor garden as well as artworks on the wall, occasionally functions as a cultural space for special events for customers.

Before visiting Korea, it can be helpful to know a bit about Korean supermarkets or convenience stores. You can not only purchase all your daily needs and basic products here, but can also purchase popular souvenir food items like Korean laver and snacks.
Top 3 Supermarkets in Korea

The three largest supermarket brands in Korea are Lotte Mart, E-mart and Home Plus, each offering an easy and convenient shopping experience. All of these large-scale retail businesses house a diverse range of general items and luxury goods, where customers can find almost everything they need. The number of these stores has exceeded 400, springing up in nearly every part of Korea.

Because of the large number of supermarkets, the stores have different operating schedules depending on their location. For example, most of the stores in Seoul are closed on the second and fourth Sunday of the month, whereas markets in other regions are often closed on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month. However, as this is not a fixed rule and is subject to change, visitors are recommended to double check the stores’ closed days in advance to avoid any inconveniences.

Shopping at these supermarkets will save a significant amount of time and money, as discounts and many promotional events are happening almost every day. Most of these supermarkets offer a basic level of foreign language service, so it is not very difficult for first-time visitors to explore these places as well. Experience the local shopping culture while browsing for the freshest food ingredients, fashion items, electronic goods and gifts for your friends and family today!
