More mourning clothes expected to hit market this week

The Ministry of Commerce is prepared to hold a discount fair to offer affordable mourning garments to people while retailers have confirmed more supplies will be put on the market this week.
In the wake of the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Minister of Commerce Apiradi Tantraporn has led ministry executives, civil servants and employees to observe nine minutes of silence, remembering the King’s contributions to the Thai people. The ceremony took place on the third floor of the Office of the Permanent Secretary for Commerce.
In an effort to assist mourners with low income, the Commerce Ministry is scheduled to cooperate with the private sector to organize a fair from October 21-23 in which discounted black and white clothes can be found. Black ribbons, a mourning accessory, will also be given to all visitors to the fair free of charge.
Meanwhile, Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak has discussed the lack of mourning clothes on the market with operators of retail shops and department stores. The operators explained that the lack of supplies last week was due to a surge in demand by five to ten times but gave assurances that a sufficient amount of such clothing will be put on shelves throughout this week.
