Last moment Eid shopping reaches peak in capital

BSS, DHAKA

Shopping malls and markets in the capital yesterday witnessed a huge rush of shoppers as the holy Eid-ul-Fitr, the largest religious festival of the Muslims, is knocking at the door.

Eid shoppers flocked to shopping hubs, like Bashundhora City Shopping Mall, Jamuna Future Park and New Market of the capital city. They came with friends and families to pick up dresses, putting smile on the traders’ faces.

The rush also caused traffic jams at several points close to the shopping malls, especially in the afternoon and evening hours, causing inconvenience to commuters.

Businessmen expressed satisfaction over the sale of the Eid clothes, shoes, cosmetics and other goods and hoped that the sales would continue till the night before the Eid-ul-Fitr day.

Braving the heat, hawkers also made brisk sale of clothes, footwear, imitation ornaments and cosmetics and other goods as these products are generally purchased by low-income people ahead of Eid.

Talking to the news agency , Proprietor of the Dress Line Bangladesh HMA Pasha said customers are crowding in their different outlets for purchasing new cloths at the last moment ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr. “So, we are passing busy time,” he added.

“We are facing huge rush of shoppers over. Women shoppers are more in number and children’s products are also in high demand,” said Manager of the Dress Line Bangladesh Abdul Latif Shahin.

He informed that they are doing both wholesale and retail businesses through different outlets across the city.

“After Shab-e-Barat, our wholesale business started. This year, our business is very good. Like earlier, many retailers from different district towns and divisional cities have collected our products,” he added.

Now, he said, a huge number of buyers are crowding in their different retail outlets, including Bashundhara City, since morning to midnight for collecting different modern and exclusive Eid collections of Dress Line.

A seller of the Mouchak Market, who sells ladies dress, said most people are making huge purchases of all products, including garments, cosmetics and shoes.

A seller of the Gawchhia Market said most of the public and private employees got their salaries and festival bonus so the shopping has gained momentum.

“Both Indian and local saris are in great demand. Different brands of local saris like Silk, Katan and Tangail are also in great demand,” he added.

Besides low income people are crowding in various footpath shops and small shops as prices here are a little bit lower than the big shopping malls.

Many Eid shoppers also complained of overpricing, especially of women and kids wear.
