Shoppers look for good quality and prices

Basra’s residents hit local markets ahead of the new school year

BASRA, September 16 — Basra’s Al-Ashar market is bustling as residents look for school uniforms and stationery for the upcoming school year, and business owners are noting shoppers’ preference for Turkish and Chinese goods over Iranian ones due to their quality and prices.

Clothes vendor Ahmed Hassan told 964: “Demand for school uniforms for boys and girls has increased with the start of the school year, along with other necessities.”

“Customers prefer Turkish and Chinese merchandise because of their quality, while demand for Iranian products is very low,” he said. “Prices are suitable for all segments of society, with the price of boys’ uniforms (shirt and trousers) at 15,000 Iraqi dinars, while girls’ uniforms (shirt and skirt) are priced at 23,000 dinars.”

Shopper Hakim Al-Mahdi said he shops at Al-Ashar market every year because prices are more affordable compared to other markets.

“The school year is about to begin, and we must prepare the official uniform for our children. I have purchased Turkish school clothes for my daughter,” he added.
