Traders at the Central Business Districts of Kumasi have expressed concerns about the low sales of goods ahead of the Easter celebration.

With few days into the Easter festivities, traders at Adum, Kejetia and Racecourse markets say they are yet to experience bumper sales as expected annually.

In sample interviews with OTEC News Reporters Nancy Boamaah and Jukiet Tetteh on Tuesday March 26, 2024, the traders ob­served that the low sales of goods had affected their profit margins.

They attributed the low sales to the ongoing Ramadan by Muslims in the country, claiming that most of their customers were fasting.

They added current economic hard is also a contributing factor to slow sales at the various markets.

“With Easter  approaching, one would expect to see customers busily purchasing goods such as fowls, rice, eggs, yam and vegeta­bles among others for the celebra­tion at various market Centre’s, but we are not seeing that” one Madam Abena, a provisions seller at Adum said.
