People on the occasion of Dhanteras on Monday thronged the markets where not only jewelry and utensils were purchased in a large amount but also automobiles were in the big sale.
Over the past few days, the car market in Dehradun has registered a huge volume of sales. The general manager of another car showroom echoed the same and said that 60 vehicles have been sold. He also said that the company is offering a discount on petrol models of the popular brand. He said, “The customer footfall this year is higher than last year.”
There was also a sale on two-wheelers giving competition in the market during this festive season.
While there is a huge sale claimed on one side, there are also claims of less sale this year compared to last year. The market for jewelry recorded sluggish business this year because of the online sales and effects of GST and demonetization, said the President of the Doon Valley Vyapar Mandal Pankaj Masson.
