Compare to previous Christmas celebrations,Shoprite outlets in Abuja were filled to the brim yesterday and today ..
Visitation to more than nine major shopping outlets showed thousands of shoppers,young and old ,patronising the malls.
Jabu Lake practically closed its gate due to too many shoppers while the Shoprite along airport road was unusually rowdy and practically fully booked by residents.
The same scenario was reported in other malls such as Silverbird Galeria,Ceddi Plaza and others.
At the Shoprite located by Abuja Chamber of Commerce ,most food stalls ran out of stock.
It is not clear how the widely reported economic challenges did not affect christmas patronage across the capital city.
