The Upper West Region is noted for Inflating prices of goods and services in order to mobilize huge margins of profits for some business owners, a Development that continues to exist because of the fact that several people fail to contact and consult relatives outside the region before buying some goods or products.
It’s important to note that some goods maybe relatively cheaper in some close or nearby regions or Districts compared to where you are within the region.
Sawla is not in Upper West Region and as a result, some goods are cheaper in Sawla Bole and other Towns than in the Region. Wood is far cheaper in Techiman than in Wa, same as spare parts.
According to a Media Personality with Sungmaale FM, DJ Busy he indicated that a back tyre of Haojue 110-3 is being sold at Ghc300 in Wa but is sold at Ghc160 in Techiman, a difference of Ghc140.
You Should check prices of these six Goods in Other Regions before buying them in Wa and other Districts.
Firstly, Major Spare Parts: These Include Tyres, Fuel tanks, Engines, Wheels, Rubber Covers etc, You Should also compare prices of Bikes in Other Regions, the world is fast evolving and Communication is key and easy to do lately, let’s not live in darkness.
