Ghana’s leading premier pop up market “Selewa Market” has announced the 3rd and 4th March as dates for its first 2018 event; the Selewa Pre-Independence Sales. Announcing the date for the March edition of the much-patronized event, Mr. Gideon Kodo who is the Head of media relations for Melon Concept, organizers of the programme stated, “we are once again creating a cashless platform for all transactions during the event. This decision is stemming largely from level interest and participation recorded from patrons and clients during the Xmas edition of the event, we are encouraging shoppers to opt for all available cashless payment platform and be rewarded with shopping vouchers and discount on their purchases.”
He further stated the initiative is in line with the national agenda by government to graduate the country’s economy into a cashless one.
The Selewa Pop-Up Market over the past 3 years has provided an avenue for businesses both SMEs and corporate to converge at one venue to sell and promote their products and services to a shopping audience. The Pre-Independence sales will feature over 60 selected vendors stocking traditional and contemporary fashion, beauty and home furnishing products at highly discounted prices. As an African-styled market most of the goods on display at Selewa market are handmade local products such as traditional clothing, bags, beads, footwear, natural skin and hair products, African-themed paintings and sculpture pieces among others
