The 10-day Sakal Shopping Festival received an overwhelming response from Puneites on its third day on Sunday at the Agricultural College grounds in Sinchan Nagar.
The shopping festival is being hosted by Sakal Media Group (SMG) from January 20 to 29.
Thousands of enthusiastic people thronged the venue to enjoy the shopping bonanza at the shopping festival. The festival offers over 500 stalls providing a wide range of shopping
From home décor, furniture to kitchen appliances and other consumer products such as fabrics, bags, shoes and jewellery, this festival has it all.
“The Sakal Shopping Festival is a one-stop shop for all your needs. I managed to find the things I wanted at good deals. Everything which is needed in our homes is available here. Today being a Sunday, there were plenty of crowds. I plan to visit again on a weekday when there will be less crowd so that I can shop and select products with ease,” said Sonali Jadhav, a visitor at the shopping festival.
Another visitor was happy to see cashless transaction facility at the venue. “The best thing about this festival is I could make payments through cards and Paytm for small transactions. It is very difficult to find easy payment modes at street shopping festivals. Also, it is safe to carry no cash at crowded places like this one. Another thing that amazed me was the man who is selling refreshments (buttermilk) here. It helped me as I was tired after the long hours of shopping at the festival,” said Anjali Kembhavi.
