It is reported that the market will be removed from Beijing and its location is planned to be a science and technology exhibition center. Currently, the market has completed the relocation work in more than 3,800 square meters and 850 stalls have been cut.

According to the stall owners, the market is said to be officially closed before the 2017 Spring Festival but the closing date is still unknown. So a lot of stalls have begun clearance sales to reduce the pressure of transporting goods in the future.
