In a corner of the Bab al-Raml neighborhood in Tripoli, heaps of vegetables, eggs, oil and much more, hundreds of citizens go to this place to buy their needs at the lowest possible price after the supermarket owner decided to sell the needy at prices that are not exorbitant and without monopolizing goods, according to what he told the correspondent of “Voice of Beirut International.” “Ghassan Farran” The first goal is to stand with people in difficult circumstances and to give a good example to the great people who deserve all the best. He stressed, “We sell over the capital, there are two kinds of sales. You can make small profits with selling a lot. You can also win a lot and sell a little. Thus the profit is equal, but a small profit is a mercy for thousands of people.”
He pointed out that his profit ranges between “1.5 percent and 2 percent, while some traders profit between 30 to 40 percent, and we provide a practical model for traders that it is possible to stand by our people to pass this difficult period.”
The question remains, will this initiative be a humanitarian message to the merchants who are ravaging the citizen’s pocket and exploiting his needs without any mercy in light of these difficult times that the country is going through.
