Second-hand apparel market experiences chill in winter

Nov '10
Even though the winter season has started, the second-hand clothes traders are complaining that they are finding the situation extremely challenging as they are unable to sell their stock. The second-hand clothing business had been very dull all through the rainy season and the scenario has not changed even with the onset of the winter season. Last year, the demand for the second-hand clothes was high but this year, the dealers have been upset with the low demand in the market.

Most of the second-hand clothes are imported from Japan or China in parcels and are further sold to the retailers. Each parcel has 150-160 apparels and the price varies from K18,000 to K300,000, on the basis of the quality of clothes as well as their brands. The trend prevailing in the market is that if a dealer opens the parcel it has to be purchased by him. So, this year most of the dealers are not buying expensive parcels. They are mostly going for the low-priced parcels as the demand in the market is very low.

Sales have drastically fallen. The demand for second-hand clothes in Yangon is low but it is high in rural areas. Most of the retailers purchase low-priced clothes within the K1000 range and then sell them to the cultivators. The highest demand comes from the laborers involved in the field of construction in Nay Pyi Taw as well as in the Bogale, Mawlamyinegyun and Dedaye townships of Ayeyarwady delta.
