MARIENTAL, 23 APR (NAMPA) – Vendors at the just ended The Namibian Newspaper Cup in Mariental described the Easter weekend as a success as they made good sales.
Speaking to Nampa before the final match on Monday, Imelda Jossob who sold meat and soft drinks said they managed to sell almost everything.
“The profit is there and we are really happy how the business side for us here at the football tournament went,” she said.
Her partner Johanna Jossob echoed her sentiments and said they learned a lot from other vendors on how to go about when selling at such events.
“I am over the moon as we had a successful weekend. Great thank you to the organisers for this event. We need more of such events in Mariental to help us make ends meet by selling,” she said.
The Mogotsi family who had energy drinks along with braaivleis and roosterbrood on offer, said Mariental received a great economic boost with the amount of people that streamed into the town over the course of the weekend.
“We made quite enough and had no losses during the weekend. The only challenge we had was that there were some illegal vendors selling food outside the stadium, and we felt that it was unfair towards those that paid to be inside,” Anita Mogotsi said.
Another vendor Dumiza ||Naobeb, whose soft and sweet ice was favoured at the netball courts said since Friday business was good.
“I decided to try my luck here and sell the ice to the public and I will buy toiletries and food for myself with what I made,” he said.
