Garment & fabric traders at loss as consumers flock to supermarts

Jun '08
A large number of shops selling consumer products are finding it difficult to attract buyers who choose to shop from supermarkets instead. This dramatic change has left petty merchants in the traditional markets in a miserable plight.

While a consumer product like food is doing extremely well in supermarkets, footwear, garment and accessory goods haven't drawn a large crowd of buyers. This is mainly because super marts offer a variety of schemes and promotional programs for food stuff while clothes and home textile products are just as expensive as in traditional markets.

Even then, buyers prefer to go to malls and super markets which provide better services and ambience instead of street shops that are overly congested.

As a result some of the biggest wholesale markets for fabric and readymade garments are being deserted by shop owners who either shift to bigger malls or choose another profession that has a larger audience and where location does not play a crucial factor in business turnover.
