“So much stuff”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

I loved going here and the staff was so nice, but because there is so much stuff i would go online and see what they have first. I did that and went in with a game plan and got everything i wanted.

“Must included in any Down Town shopping experience (especially first time in NY)”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Pearl River is a must in any (first time in NY) shopping experience down town. The shop is rich of a wide portfolio of items spreading from home furniture, kitchenware, clothings, toys and many more; just name a thing and you will find it. Everything is not sloppy and rather it has a nice feeling of Asia and China in particular. All items are particular and carachteristic. The shop has a nice vibe!
Personally every time we go to NY for a we, we end by stopping at the Pearl River and have fun at looking and purchaisng some of the new items. Highly indicated for personal home and also for not epensive presents. We got very good responses from our relatives/friends when they received selected presents purchased at Pearl River.
It is conveniently located by Broadway and can be a nice stop during a downtown tour.

“Great Shopping Experience in NYC's Chinatown”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

I've loved Pearl River since it was a much more Chinese-centric three floor emporium aimed at local Asian customers, and was worried when it morphed into a hipster/fusion department store that too much would be lost in translation. Good news - still special, still a great NYC shopping experience, and a perfect place to pick up that oddball something lovely/funny/unique without necessarily spending a lot of cash. There are clothes - including really gorgeous things for women like contemporary updates on the classic embroidered silk jackets - that you'll find nowhere else. There are adorable baby things - little brocade pajamas, lion slippers, whimsical and well-designed nightlights. There are exotic teas, spices, candies, and sauces, as well as cooking implements specific to Asian cuisine. There are all kinds of embroidered and fanciful textiles downstairs; colorful and decorative paper kites in the shapes of butterflies and dragons; striking paper mache masks, lovely little notebooks, slippers - oh I could go on, but you'll want to explore it yourself. On Broadway, just a couple of blocks north of Canal, it's a fun place to walk off some of that divine lunch you just had, and pick up something unusual.

“worth stopping to shop”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

This place is fun, lots of gadgets, beautiful dishes, material, clothes, all sorts of oriental style items. I found a lot of very nice inexpensive things to take home as gifts. We're going back next time we get to New York.
