Ramadan bazaar traders’ rent reduced by 80%

A SUM of RM60,000 has been set aside to help ease the burden of traders at the main Ramadan bazaar in Sibu, Sarawak.

Nangka assemblyman Datuk Dr Annuar Rapaee (pic) said that last year, the traders paid RM600 to rent a stall.

The amount was considered too high by the traders.

“With the help of my service centre, we have reduced the cost by almost 80% to RM125 per stall,” he said.

Traders would also not have to pay the RM200 deposit for cleaning.

Dr Annuar advised traders to keep their stalls clean and prepare food in a hygienic manner.

“Do not sell stale food. Make sure the ingredients used are fresh,” he added.

Dataran Tun Tuanku Bujang Ramadan Bazaar Phase II has 180 stalls managed by the Taman Selera Harmoni Sibu Muslim Traders Association.

The bazaar is open every day from 2pm to 10.30pm throughout the month of Ramadan.

The bazaar will operate until the night of Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
