Distinctive service units are located in different places of Songhwa Street which was built wonderfully in April this year.

According to an official of the Ministry of Commerce, there are well over a hundred service facilities on the street.

Commercial service bases blending in well with diverse skyscrapers, high-rise apartment houses, public buildings, several resting parks and decorative structures offer convenience to people in their everyday life.

Standouts are service facilities on the circular elevated bridge.

The service facilities built on the bridge in the shape of a circle across the road at the central part of the street cut a conspicuous figure.

There are foodstuff, cosmetics and mushroom booths as well as a bookstore.

The foodstuff booth deals in confectionery and condiments produced by renowned domestic production units, the cosmetics booth sells different cosmetics which are popular among women and the mushroom booth serves a variety of delicious mushrooms to attract attention of people.

According to servants, many people visit the booths on holidays or rest days. Visitors include not only residents on Songhwa Street but also those from several districts of Pyongyang and local areas.

A woman from Songsin-dong No. 1 said that she had children who would marry soon and it is a good place for purchasing the dress materials for a wedding ceremony.

“We have purchased building parts and daily necessities for a new household and we are very satisfied since they are smart and useful ones made from domestic materials,” said a newly married couple living in Songhwa-dong No. 2.

The Sadong Kumsanpho Speciality Shop near the iconic 80-storey skyscraper serves different kinds of pickled fishes living in the West Sea of Korea.

Public service amenities, especially photography studio, bathhouse and barbershop, are conveniently arranged for the life of residents.

Residents of Songhwa Street say that they are resolved to repay favour shown by the benevolent country which provided them with new houses free of charge and every convenience in their everyday life.
