Why You Should Do Business In Onitsha by antivirushop: 10:20am On Sep 26, 2019
There are uncountable reasons why its cheaper and easier to do business or buy goods from Onitsha. I may not wirte all but will give the basic ones

1.Proximity
Onitsha is a commercial city with less land mass. You can move across the city within 30mins. The various markets in the city is not far from each other thereby offering you the convenience to do Biz in the city. For example ,moving from main market to building material market takes only 10mins and can cost N100 for transport.

2. Large Concentration of importers/Varieties
The markets in onitsha has importers in virtually all items. That is why it is easy to find and buy almost all the varieties of items u might need here. Also it makes the prices affordable. There are some items you can buy cheaper in onitsha than in lagos even though all cargos and shipments come almost through lagos ports. There are different markets for different items. Eg main market( for general goods- clothes,articles, phones,accessories), building material market, Shoe site market, Stockfish market, aluminium profiles markets, spare parts market etc.
U can get varieties of any type of goods u desire. remember what they said about variety being the spice of life

3. Affordable freight/ Transportation
This is one of the areas onitsha has a higher advantage over other commercial cities. Here in onitsha, u can get transport vehicles/lorries going to virtually all parts and states of Nigeria and even outside Nigeria like Cameroon, Ghana etc. Its not only availability but also its cheap and affordable. For example you can send goods or package from onitsha to Sokoto, Kano, Yola, etc at the cost of N1000. While sending goods from a location in lagos to another location in lagos costs same amount.Its so because there are many transport companies that transverse through Nigeria here in onitsha. For example, going from Onitsha to Sokoto which is a very far distance can take u only 10hours in a luxury bus. So u can come to onitsha from sokoto to buy goods and be back at sokoto the next day. Do u know u can go to lagos from Onitsha via a bus with N2000 if u dont hwve muchnmoney to board regular bus. Just go to asaba from onitsha and board a bus. And so with other locations throughout Nigeria

4. Good Infrastructure/Hospitality sector.
Thanks to the government of Peter Obi, onitsha has well inter connected roads. Also other amenities like schools, hospitals, hotels. You can get very good hotels at a cheaper rates. Even house rent in onitsha is generally cheap. You can get a 3bedroom flat for N240,000 The city is also well secured due to the empowerment of the various security agencies. Financial institutions like banks are scattered everywhere in the city. So getting money is easier.
This town does not encounter communal or sectorial crisis so there is peace.

5. Affordable goods
As I said earlier that Onitsha has a cluster of many importers. This makes it easy to buy goods at cheapest rate than elsewhere in Nigeria. Except foodstuffs that is generally brought down from north to east, virtually u can buy all other items at the most affordable rate here.

6. Cheap Rent
Generally its no news that rent in Onitsha is generally cheaper than most locations in Nigeria. You can get monthly shop rents ranging from N3000 - N30000 in big markets here. Even house rent comes cheap too compared to other locations. N180000 can get you a comfortable 2 or 3bedroom flats in the heart of the city. Such amount may get you only a self con apartment in lagos.

the thing is there are places in Onitsha u can buy different items u see at a lower price. it all depends on the knowledge u have of them.

Generally in main market u can get all clothing materials ranging from jeans, polo or T-shirt(China polo, Indian polo, Indonesian polo, Pakistan polo, turkey shirts and polo), boxers( China boxers, turkey boxers , aba boxers), women clothing. there are places u will go u will see quality gowns like sri lanka , american wears that are sold for 6k. at times u will see importers who wanna clear their warehouse selling those clothes at N500 and many more examples. u cwn get bundle of indian polo at between 7,500 to 8k. u can get bundle of good china round neck polo at 13k per bundle etc. many people who run big boutiques in Abuja, lagos, portharcourt, Kano etc they come here to buy their weras at low prices and sell in their shops. if u re outside Onitsha find time and come down here and source ur items. u will make ur cash

The truth is u can't come to Onitsha market and say u didn't buy ur item at d best ever price. its all about knowing the corners of the market to get exactly what u want and meeting the right importers .

I will try and be answering some questions people has asked me outside here her for others to learn

all those polo has quality on its own depending on their prices. what determines d price of a polo is d material, design and demand. basically all polo sells well in the market. but there are ones DT sells faster. the china polos sells faster BC it has higher demand and better designs. e dey sharp for eye and u know good designs attracts d eye. na china polo big boutique owners dey buy . china polo with good naterial and wuality not all china polo o. so make u take note. below I will upload few pic of china polo even though I don't want to be posting pic here.
