Best Denki entered Hong Kong's market during the later half of the 1980s, they operated within Yaohan store's electronic department under the name Yaohan Best. When Yaohan declared bankruptcy in 1997, it was spared from liquidation since all the goods and products in the department are owned by Best Denki. Their stores in New Town Plaza and Tuen Mun Town Plaza were allowed to continue their operation on their original locations. Since 1 June 2011, all of Best Denki's business in the territory was acquired by Suning Citicall (which later became Suning Appliance).[1]
