Points: Introduction – Different points where Juma Bazars are held – Availability of a variety of commodities – A place of attraction – Conclusion.

Pakistan is an under-developed country. We are passing through economic depression. It has become difficult for a common man to arrange both ends meet. In order to give relief to the people from the ever increasing prices and to provide essential commodities at cheaper rates, Juma Bazars are organized in Karachi.

In Karachi, Juma Bazars are held at different points of city namely, Karimabad, North Nazimabad, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Drigh Colony, P.E.C.H.S. etc. A Juma Bazar offers the scene of fair or exhibition. It is held in a big open space. Various kinds of people come to the Juma Bazar to sell their goods. But they cannot set up their shops where ever they like. The Juma Bazar of each area has its organizing committee. They look after the methodical arrangement of the shops. Each kind of shops is assigned a particular place so that the buyers may know where they will find the things they want. The shops are arranged in rows with sufficient space between them. The space is meant for the passage of the buyers. Besides some big manufacturing firms and companies also set up their stalls to display and sell their products. Of course, the shop-keepers have to pay a reasonable rent for this

Hundreds of people visit Juma Bazar on every Friday. Customers find a rich variety of commodities here. Everything of daily use is available in the Juma Bazar. The most busy corner of the Juma Bazar for the general consumer is where poultry, eggs, fish, vegetable and fruits are available at quite a lower price than in the general market. Women throng in large number and make their weekly purchase of onions, potatoes, vegetable and some of their household things. The shops remain open all the day long. But the real buyers gather in the afternoon. There are shops of dolls, luxury goods, brass and bell-metal things, shoes, sandals, wooden things, iron-made things and what not? The most favorite shops of the young girls are those of cosmetic and garments. Ready-made garments, both new and old, attract a large number of buyers. During the period of the Bazar, the sellers of those shops carry on a brisk trade. The venders are found crying at the top of their voice to sell

The Juma Bazar is a place of great attraction for the children. They crowd in stalls of dolls, sweets, chocolates and toffees. Besides they demand cold drink and ice cream also when they feel thirsty. It equally gives a chance of recreation for holiday makers.

The Juma Bazar is a good commercial enterprise. It is a good device of supplying articles of day to day use at reasonable prices. The local authorities should make better plans to improve them.
