A number of traders in Tanah Abang market, Central Jakarta, complained about the decreasing of people's purchasing power in Ramadhan 1438 Hijriyah this time. Compared to previous Ramadan, sales of clothes for Lebaran tend to go down.


Rendy (23) Muslim clothing merchants admit that the sales turnover from the first day of fasting until now continues to rise. It's just that when compared with last year's sales, merchandise tends to be quiet.


"It's going up, but honestly it's better last year, the morning is crowded with buyers, the afternoon is a bit less," said the trader from Jakarta, Monday (5/6/2017).


According to Rendy, most of his customers are from outside Java. For example from Makassar. The buyers usually buy clothes gamis and koko. They usually come to the store or message online, through WhatsApp or BBM.


He claimed not to lose money with the number of clothes Lebaran sold in online stores. On the contrary, he feels benefited by it.


"There are buyers who go on sale online and even take the goods," said Rendy who has been staying at Tanah Abang Market since 2010 ago.


The sale of this year is also felt by Sahril, a clothing merchant shirt and other koko clothes. "It was crowded last year, which used to be with the new school year," he said.


About the number of online clothing store sellers, Sahril just say not a few customers who buy clothes at his shop then they sell again online. So, he feels advantaged by the rise of online sales.


Yodi, another coco shirt merchant, also said that online clothing sales through istagram or e-commerce profitable store where he works.


"There is a slight increase, if last year less know, there is a buy for sale online that ngebantu," said Yodi.


Meanwhile Ardi (38), a trader of mukena, also said that this year's turnover was much lower than last year. He admitted there was a decrease in people's purchasing power.


"Last year is better, this year is less sales, decreasing, people less area, like from Sulawesi, Makassar," Ardi said.


Ardi who claimed to have sold in Tanah Abang market for 10 years said, usually in the morning his merchandise is sold out. However, for this year it did not happen.


"The morning is busy at 6:00 am to 8:00 pm It is the same time that the price is the same compared to the past, only the purchasing power of the people down," said the trader from Sumatra.


Penjualan di Pasar Tanah Abang Tidak Tinggi Seperti Lebaran  Tahun Lalu



Sejumlah pedagang di pasar Tanah Abang, Jakarta Pusat, mengeluhkan turunnya daya beli masyarakat pada Ramadhan 1438 Hijriyah kali ini. Dibanding Ramadhan sebelumnya, penjualan baju untuk lebaran cenderung turun.


Rendy (23) pedagang baju muslimah mengakui bahwa omzet penjualannya dari hari pertama puasa sampai saat ini terus naik. Hanya saja jika dibandingkan dengan penjualan tahun lalu, dagangannya cenderung sepi.


"Naik terus. Tapi jujur lebih bagus tahun lalu. Pagi ramai pembeli, siang agak kurang," kata pedagang asal Jakarta tersebut, Senin (5/6/2017).


Menurut Rendy, kebanyakan pelanggannya dari luar Jawa. Misal dari Makassar. Para pembeli tersebut biasanya memborong baju gamis dan koko. Mereka biasa datang ke toko atau pesan secara online, melalui WhatsApp atau BBM.


Ia mengaku tidak merugi dengan banyaknya baju Lebaran yang dijual di toko-toko online. Bahkan sebaliknya, ia merasa diuntungkan dengan hal itu.


"Ada yang beli terus dijual online. Malah ngebantu, mereka ambil barang dari kita," kata Rendy yang sudah bergadang di Pasar Tanah Abang sejak 2010 lalu tersebut.


Sepinya penjualan tahun ini juga dirasakan oleh Sahril, pedagang baju gamis dan baju koko lainnya. "Ramai tahun lalu. Dulu pas barengan tahun ajaran baru," kata dia.


Soal banyaknya lapak penjual baju secara online, Sahril justru mengatakan tak sedikit pelanggannya yang membeli baju di tokonya kemudian mereka jual lagi secara online. jadi, dia merasa diuntungkan dengan maraknya penjualan online.


Yodi, pedagang baju koko lain, juga mengatakan bahwa penjualan baju secara online melalui istagram atau e-commerce menguntungkan toko tempat ia bekerja.


"Ada kenaikan sedikit. Kalau tahun lalu kurang tahu. Ada yang beli dijual lagi secara online itu ngebantu," kata Yodi.


Sementara itu Ardi (38), pedagang mukena, juga mengatakan bahwa tahun ini omzetnya turuh jauh dibanding tahun lalu. Ia mengakui ada penurunan daya beli masyarakat.


"Tahun lalu lebih bagus. Tahun ini kurang penjualan, menurun, orang-orang daerah kurang, seperti dari Sulawesi, Makassar," kata Ardi.


Ardi yang mengaku sudah berjualan di pasar Tanah Abang selama 10 tahun itu berujar, biasanya dulu di pagi hari dagangannya sudah habis terjual. Namun, untuk tahun ini hal tersebut tak terjadi.


"Pagi tuh ramai jam 06.00-08.00 WIB. Nah biasa habis jam segitu. Tahun ini sama saja harganya dibanding dulu. Cuma daya beli masyarakat turun," ujar pedagang asal Sumatera itu.
