Good footfall in the market but low business compared to last year

Jaipur: The festivity and an extended weekend started on Wednesday on the eve of Diwali when markets saw a good footfall. However, the regular ecstasy in the Market was clearly missing as people were mainly in the token purchase of various items including things needed for the Diwali puja, cloths, firecrackers and jewellery.

Most of the walled city wore a vibrant look with various kind of lighting to lure the customers. In the evening people were roaming to see the Diwali Roshni in the walled city with their families and thronged the eateries.

Traders and small venders said that the footfall in the market was good but that did not convert much into the sale of various goods. Market associations said that the amount of sale that was witnessed last year was missing even on the Diwali eve.

“People are into the token sale and have economized their Diwali budget. For firecrackers if my regular customer used to buy firecrackers of Rs 2000 every year he has purchased firecrackers of merely Rs 1000 having only light emitting firecrackers,” said Abdul Sheikh, a wholesale dealer of firecrackers in the walled city.

Jewellery shops were flooded with the customers; however majority of the customers purchased the low value items varying from a ring to gold chain. “Business is almost 30 percent down compared to last year. Hopefully with the onset of wedding season it may get elevated,” said an office bearer of jewellery association.
