The world’s largest retail store is Shinsegae Centumcity Department Store, located in Busan, South Korea. With 3.163 million square feet in one retail location, the Shinsegae destination flagship store in Cetumcity beat out the Herald Square Macy’s Department Store in New York City for the title of “world’s largest” by more than a million square feet.

The English translation of “Shinsegae” is “new world,” and, from a retailing perspective, the name does not disappoint. Since the Shinsegae Centumcity Department Store is larger that most of the shopping malls in the U.S., it’s not surprising that the Shinsegae Centumcity is much more like a mall itself, rather than just a normal retail store. In addition to the usual men’s, women’s and children’s apparel, shoes, and accessories, some of the features of the Shinsegae Centumcity Department Store include:
