Ladies shopping at Sukkur

Report  Bisma Waseem : Sukkur: The Eid Shopping craze reached its peak in Sukkur with the start of the third Ashra of Ramazan-ul-Mubarak and number of buyers is also increasing day by day in the markets rapidly. The people of Sukkur especially ladies and children are seen busy in Eid shopping which will continue till the “Chand Raat”. They have started thronging bazaars and shopping malls after iftar to buy clothes, shoes and jewelry. Seasonal vendors have set up different colorful Eid stalls at various points including Shahi Bazar, Mission road, Gharibabad and others offering diverse kinds of cosmetics, gleaming bangles, watches, embroidered kurtis, stylish trousers, colorful stoles, fashion earrings, bracelets, shoes and other attractive items. Some people have stated displeasure over the sky-high prices averting them to purchase items of their choices. Makeshift stalls of clothes and shoes including other items on cheaper rates is the only alternative left for the less privileged. Moreover, makeshift stalls are not only attracting the lower class but the upper middle class as well due to low prices. With the rise in number of buyers, traffic jam in the city, especially in front of shopping centers has become a routine.02
