Breaking things to vent frustration is a normal phenomenon when people get upset, but usually such behavior would be stopped by others.

Recently, a Shenyang shopping mall opened a special store for people to break all kinds of things to relieve pressure and bad mood for a minute in Shenyang. But beware! It's for women only!

Real TV sets and cell phones

The venting store located in the fourth floor of a shopping mall has a sign "No Men" at the door.

The store is divided into several zones such as a living room and a bedroom. Wang Jingyu, the business manager of the shopping mall said they would like to open a kitchen-like zone later, and they have done this so "women can come here to feel like they are in their own homes but without any limitations, and they can break anything here."

According to Wang, all the facilities in the store are real, such as second-hand mobile phones and second-hand television sets they purchased from 30 yuan to 100 yuan each. In addition, customers can tear paper, throw plates and beat big beanbags in the corners to vent their frustrations.

Most customers are white collar and university students

The store prepares some motorcycle helmets and gloves for customers to wear to avoid accidental injuries. At the same time, considering long-time 'venting' may bring passive impact to customers, the store limits the time to 1 minute.

Wang told reporters they do not charge for women who have purchased at least 38 yuan of goods in their shopping mall's indoor park.

Since the store opened, most customers are white collar and university students, and most things that make them upset are the economy and job hunting problems.
