With the urban development and building projects during the Ming and Qing dynasties, many bazaars and guild halls converged in Qianmen Street, which gradually made it evolve into a major business district focusing on shopping and entertainment. At the same time, Quanjude Peking Roast Duck-Since 1864, Bianyifang Roast Duck Restaurant, Ruifuxiang Silk-Since 1862, Tongrentang Chinese Medicine-Since 1669 and other brand shops also opened outlets here, and a century-old cultural circle has emerged as a result. In comparison with Wangfujing Pedestrian Street, Qianmen Pedestrian Street gives more prominence to the original flavor of Beijing. Qianmen Pedestrian Street consists of many functional areas such as Beijing's Culture, Domestic and Foreign Cuisines, Brand Shopping, Leisure & Fitness and so on. Nowadays, over 80 of China's Time-honored Brands along the street unfold the far-reaching cultural deposits and characteristics of historic heritages of the Qianmen Area.
