Large numbers of wholesalers, especially from outstations like Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, came to the market to buy textiles.  Similarly, retail sales were overwhelming. The textile traders said  wholesale and retail trade in the market was booming this week in the run-up to Ramzan.  Wholesalers had arrived from Kerala and Andhra Pradesh yesterday after several weeks.  Sarees, Vettis, Lungis, lace embroideries cloth were sold in large quantities.
