With only two weeks left for the holy Eid-ul- Fitr, one of the biggest religious festivals of the Muslims, the shopping has started gaining momentum here amid huge supply of consumer goods and enthusiasm among the people for buying. All the city markets are seen busy now to sell their commodities to the shoppers. Customers are thronging the shopping centres from morning till midnight

The buying spree is likely to continue till the last day of the holy Ramadan. With the rise in the number of buyers, traffic jam in the city’s busy market places, roadside makeshift markets and intersections, particularly in front of shopping centres, have become acute. Retail prices of children, men’s and women’s wear both countries made and foreign especially Indian, rose by 20 to 25 per cent than the previous year.

Markets have been decorated with some of their gates being illuminated with coloured neon signs.

The volume of transactions is relatively higher this year as the city’s Boro Bazar, Moshiur Rahman Market, Khaja Khanjahan Ali Hawkers Market, Nixon Market, Shaheed Sohrawardy Market, Esha Chamber, Akter Chamber, Malek Chamber, Dawkbangla Super Market, Khulna Shopping Complex, Khan Tower, KDA New Market, Arong, Safe and Save, KDA Avenue Markets and different shopping houses were humming with unusual Eid shopping crowd.

Small shops are found more crowded than the big shopping malls. Buyers in larger numbers, mostly women and children, are crowding the shopping centres before and after the Iftar.

 Prices of different varieties of clothes, particularly cotton, silk and synthetic have registered a sharp rise although the shops are almost full of a variety of garments.

A ‘Lehenga’ type Indian cloth made by jorjet with mixing silk and floor touch long kamij. The clothes are being sold at the cost of Tk 4,000 to Tk 15,000.

The goods vary from luxury to household items. Varieties of Indian sarees, Bootics, Organ De Bootics, Moslin, Sarara, Jamdani, Rajshahi silk and three pieces also flooded the shopping centres, especially KDA New Market, said Aliful Haque, owner of Aponjona at KDA New Market.

Most of the rich buyers are crowding different big shopping centres while the middle-income group people are seen purchasing their desired items from the Borobazar and Nixon Markets while the low-income group people are also seen purchasing from makeshift markets.

Shoppers are also frequenting readymade garment and locally made clothes shops. The shops are flooded, with garments, the country made Moslin, Jamdani and Tangail sari with the latest designs, particularly for children.

The shopkeepers are yet not happy with their present sale and the profit being earned from the purchasers.
