Brand­ing weekly bazaars

Enterprise - - Editor’s desk - Tehmina Hashim Karachi

It was re­fresh­ing to read the ar­ti­cle in your last is­sue, ti­tled ‘The Po­ten­tial of Weekly Bazaars’. I was not aware of the eco­nomic po­ten­tial these tem­po­rary mar­kets of­fer. Most peo­ple who visit these bazaars seem to be only con­cerned with the easy ac­cess and some­what lower prices, while the ven­dors only aim at sell­ing their ware to eke out a liv­ing. It is im­por­tant for the govern­ment to pro­vide an in­fra­struc­ture that chan­nel­izes this po­ten­tial net­work­ing spot for ven­dors, whole­salers and ex­porters. It is also im­por­tant to im­prove the over­all aes­thet­ics and hy­gienic con­di­tions of the bazaars to at­tract high-end buy­ers. The Sun­day Bazaar lo­ca­tion in DHA Karachi has been de­vel­oped on these lines and draws big crowds from all in­come seg­ments. The same can be done at other bazaars
