Tired of Sky High Prices? Explore These 4 Affordable Bazaars Of Islamabad For Eid Shopping!

Rohama Batool

Are you sick and tired of being let down by products that are costly and shopping experiences that are monotonous? The act of going on a seemingly endless number of shopping trips might at times feel like plunging headfirst into an endless maze of unsatisfying discoveries and unfulfilled expectations, much like the pages of a book that has been poorly written.

Just think — lawn dresses now cost from 15 to 20 K!

With the price of lawn dresses ranging from a whooping 15 to 20K this year, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that stores could have just very politely asked for your kidneys as payment instead! A single pair of nice shoes can go from approximately 5 to 10K now! Unless the shoes walk themselves, nothing can justify these prices.

Where there are a lot of people who can afford these luxuries and have ‘deep pockets’, there is still a huge number of people who prefer to shop while being on a budget.
