PATTAYA:--Sellers of school uniforms say sales have been rocky before the start of the new semester.


Manote Wongthaiwan, of Thaveechai, the biggest student uniform retailer in Naklua, said the shop has been busy, but parents are buying only what they absolutely need.

 

Customers have said budgets are tight and they are worried about the economy, so are buying socks and shoes and only basic uniforms they need, with few luxuries.

 

He said Thaveechai has not raised prices this year and has tried to help parents by offering 10% discounts and free embroidery.

 

He said the shop also employs students as part-time employees to help them earn some money during the school holiday.
