This supermarket is a beloved feature of many international guests in Seoul. It is located only 1 min by foot from the Exit 8 of Myeongdong Station, in the tourist hotspot of Myeong-dong, at the 1st underground floor of Sinil Building’s annex.
Unlike other supermarkets, Myeong-dong Mart specializes in products popular with tourists, such as Korean food items, cosmetics, daily necessities, and souvenirs. There are nearly 2,500 types of products here, including kimchi, seaweed, ginseng products, ramen noodles, and crafts. The most popular of them are laver seaweed, snack sets, and ginseng tea. The price tends to be more affordable than convenience stores as well. Staff members offer services in English, Chinese, and Japanese, and accept payments in Japanese Yen and Chinese Yuan. It is especially popular with Japanese and Chinese visitors, thanks to word-of-mouth in social media. Purchases of over KRW 50,000 come with free delivery to hotels or homestays within 5 km of Myeong-dong Mart.
