Mingalar Market shops moved to new locations

Shops from the burned out Mingalar Market have been moved to plots in the New Mingalar Market, Mingalarmon Market and a temporary market set up on a football ground in Mingalar Taung Nyunt township in first week of June.

Dr Saw Hla Tun, a Mingalar Market welfare committee member, said it was impossible to house all the shops in one place.

“We don’t have enough space in one spot for all those shops.

“For that reason we moved the 816 cosmetics and medicines shops from the fourth floor to the New Mingalar Market, which is near the burned building.

“The other 2000 shops will be housed at the temporary market at the football ground and another 300 shops at the Mingalarmon Market,” he said.
