Despite economic hard times Uasin Gishu Residents  have  thronged  supermarkets ,malls and  other  popular joints to buy  Valentine Gifts  for  their  loved ones.


Valentine’s Day, also known as Saint Valentine’s Day, is a day synonymous with couples adorned with red and Black garments and often exchange gifts, flowers and chocolates as a sign of their commitment to love.


A  spot  check by Hubzmedia however  has  identified that   compared  to last year most of the residents   have  decried hard economic  times and have cut  down on this year’s  valentines  Spending’s,


“This year I have managed to sell only a few flowers many people are complaining lack of money, Said a Flower vendor in Eldoret.


In some of the Malls however customers complained   of high prices and would rethink of their plan to buy certain gifts for their loved ones,


“I came here to buy a present  for my Husband This valentine’s  day ,but then the prices  are  on the  roof  I have reconsidered I will not buy the present  because the money  i had  budgeted for  is not  enough  ” Mary  a resident in Eldoret said.


At  The  New Yako Household  supermarket along  Oginga Odinga Street however  the management  has slashed  prices for  various  valentine  gifts allowing most of their   customers to  shower their loved  ones  with gifts,


“ Schools  reopened  just the other  day, many people  are still struggling with difficult  economic times and this has informed  the move  by the  management  so slush prices  for  the various  Valentine Gifts it’s  a  way of  us  celebrating with them and  also allowing them shower  their  loved ones with special  bouquet of  flowers, chocolates , special drinks and other  gifts available at our  Yako Shops  ” Said  Francis Mberia a manager at one of the  outlets.
