As the Easter festivity approaches, traders within the Ho Central market have expressed mixed feeling about sales during the period. While some complain of poor sales, others say sales have rather been good.
 A vegetable seller, Dela Dodie in an interview said though sales have improved during the period, sales during the yuletide have been better. She however hoped that sales will further improve by the days. A cold store operator, Sitso Ahorlu and a boutique owner, Grace Annobel shared the same opinion. A textile dealer, Forgive Avorgbedor said many customers complain of the non-availability of money in the system which she said has affected patronage. 

Also, during this period, most people travel to their hometowns to mark the period with their families. However, the story seems to be different this year as some drivers at the Ho lorry station who spoke to the reporter said passengers are not at the station as compared to the previous years. They noted that driver who ply the Ho-Accra road are no longer making return journey from Accra but they are optimistic that the situation will change in the coming days as most workers will break for the festivity by close of work on Thursday. Meanwhile a visit to some saloons and tailoring shops revealed that business is booming than ever before as most people were trooping in to put on new looks.
