Mohammed Al-Shahri, textile and clothing committee chairman at the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) confirmed that KSA’s clothing retail sector is a SR10 bn a year industry, Arab News has reported. “Designers are keen on making clothes and accessories since it is considered a profitable business despite the initial challenges. Individuals have since been entering a market that had been long-monopolized by fewer companies.” “International companies are also using exhibitions as a way to approach Saudi shoppers,” he said. Jeddah’s malls and shopping centers were very crowded ahead of Eid, where both men and women found themselves victims of enormous price hikes.
