Children Wear Price Is Sky Rocketing In Benin

By - - [General ]

Ahead of the Yuletide season, prices of children wears is sky rocketing in Benin, Edo, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
The report said that apart from the increase in prices of children clothes, many women now buy fairly used clothes also known as gbogbo’ or second hand clothes at bend down boutiques.

A visit to some children shops at Ekiosa, Oba, Uselu and Egor markets on Thursday showed that majority of people now buy more of the gbogbo clothes that were not expensive.
Mrs Alice Ehigiator, who sells children clothes, attributed the high cost to the upcoming Christmas celebration.
She said a trouser and shirt for a baby boy which used to be N6,000 in 2017 now sells for N8,500.

Madam Cecilia Urewu, another trader in child wears, said majority of cloth sellers no longer buy new clothes because of the high cost.
According to her, the prevailing market situation and the Yuletide season are also factors that contributed to the increase.

“This year, I could not buy clothes for my children so I decided to buygbogbo’ which will last for long and more durable.

“At the moment, everything is expensive, not only clothes,’’ she said.
A customer, Ms Tina Lacoja, attributed the non-availability of customers in the market to the fact that clothes were too expensive.

According to Tina, majority of customers no longer buy new clothes, because when they think of the cost they tend to go for a first grade gbogbo.
She noted that the price of children wears would increase more in December due to the Christmas celebration.
