Since the beginning of this month, cold wave sweeping across the country. So the demand for winter clothes has increased and Dhaka International Trade Fair also affected by this.

About half a hundred blazers and suit sales shops participated in the fair from different places of the capital including Nilkhet, Elephant Road, Mirpur, Bhasantek, Keraniganj. Most of these are from unfamiliar brands.

Many buyers said that many of those who could not buy blazers and coats due to high prices were waiting for the trade fair. Because of this fair, middle-class buyers get the opportunity to buy their desired coats and blazers at affordable prices. Sellers also pay different prices to attract buyers. Most of the shops are offering a discount of Tk 400 to Tk 600.

However, crowds at ready-made suit-blazer stalls have increased. Entering through the main gate of the fair, a number of coat-blazer stalls will be seen on the left side.

Although customers are gathering in the blazers and suit stalls few customers are seen in the other product stalls.

This year buyers are seen less compared to the previous year due to cold wave, Ijtema, and city corporation elections in January. So traders are waiting for the holidays. Because buyers and visitors come to the fair more in the weekend.

Hasan Ali, a leather goods dealer, said that this time they are struggling to pick up consumption money. He hoped the sale would be good on Friday and Saturday.
