Most of the peoples are preferring to buying Chocolates, Cakes and Dry Fruits this year instead of traditional sweets. But some people preferred to buy sweets to follow the tradition. But this year sales of sweets is dropped. So the shopkeepers opened stalls which provides Chocolates, Cakes and Dry Fruits to avoid losses.
Gifts market has also dropped sales this year . Online shopping is the reason behind it. Gift shops only have mugs, photo frames and greeting cards and online shopping provides each and everything that you want to buy. Sales is dropping each year so the shopkeepers are worried.
