Bhubaneswar: With only a few days to go before Dussehra, shopkeepers are bringing in new collections to their stores.
A lot of rush is seen at the apparel stores as the shopkeepers are offering lucrative deals to attract more customers.
While women have a lot of options from simple cotton saris to netted ones and from embellished to embroidered saris, jumpsuits and palazzo pants are the most sought-after pieces of clothing for girls, apart from salwar suits in a wide range of colours and designs.
The stretch from Vani Vihar to Rajmahal Square has stores of major apparel brands lined one after another. Some stores were found offering gifts with every purchase while others were giving scratch-and-win coupons or having lucky draws.
People are also indulging in street shopping. The shops at Market Building are offering clothes keeping in mind the changing fashion trends. Jewellery and footwear are also available at affordable rates.
The BMC Bhawani Mall and Bhubaneswar Central at Sahid Nagar are proving to be the favourite hangout zones.
