A Correspondent :
Eid shopping has gained momentum in the port city as the Eid-ul- is drawing near. Over 100 shopping establishments and several thousands of shops of the city have remained jam-packed with the Eid-shoppers regularly. Muslim people in the port city are gathering in different markets to buy new dresses for their family members and dear ones.
The shopping establishments of the city, including Bipani Bitan (New Market), Reazuddin Bazaar, Lucky Plaza, Southland Center, Highway Plaza, Central Plaza, Mimi Super Market, Chittagong Shopping Complex, Apollo Shopping Center, Bay Shopping Center, Amin Center, Singapore-Bangkok Market, VIP Tower, Agrabad Shopping Centers, Chawk Bazaar and all other markets are the traditional venues for the Eid-shoppers.
All the shopping complexes have been colorfully decorated and illuminated to attract the customers. As a result, the tasteful decoration and illumination of the shopping complexes has changed the nocturnal view of the port city.  Usually, the rush of customers starts at noon and continues till midnight in the shopping centers. However, these establishments were packed with innumerable customers yesterday as the day was a public holiday.
Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) has taken stern security measures to control the law and order situation in the city to ensure a secure Eid shopping for the people. CMP has deployed 35 teams in the city. The teams are working round the clock to check the possible hijack and robbery in the city during this time.
Women constitute the majority of the customers, who are moving from shop to shop to collect their favorite dresses and other cosmetics goods. The affluent section of the society are rushing towards the markets to buy costly dresses including three pieces, foreign sarees, cosmetics and even gold ornaments to make the Eid festival more enjoyable.
Meanwhile, some of the shopping centers and markets have already declared discounts on the prices of their products and offering lucky coupons to attract the customers in the port city. Despite the government decision for using own power after 10 pm in the markets, the owners of the shops are using the power from PDB instead of generator. The leaders of shop owners associations of several markets categorically admitted that they could manage the officials of PDB to supply power in the markets after 10 pm till Eid.
As a result, people of Chittagong are suffering from load shedding in the nights of Ramadan. Meanwhile, the administration has directed the shop owners and businessmen to stop all illumination and decoration during the Ramzan.
However, the poorer section of society is doing their necessary Eid shopping from footpaths and Jahur Hawker market. The footpath surrounding the Reazuddin Bazaar, New Market, Laldighi area, Chawk bazaar, Agrabad area and Halishahar areas are now full of customers of low-income group for Eid shopping.
