Abdul Rahman Al Sharid, Director of General Projects Department at the municipality and Chairman of the committee to oversee the shifting of the Hamriya Central Vegetables and Fruits market, opened the auction.

The first day of the auction, held at the municipality's Staff Club in Al Garhoud, saw a wholesale shop and 12 stalls going under hammer and fetching a total of Dh5.88 million.

The shop was auctioned for Dh1.26 million, while the stalls with an area ranging from 92sqm to 172sqm were auctioned for a total of Dhs4.62 million.

Mr Al Sharid said that the traders were free to move to the new premises now as only a few shops were to be auctioned. The successful bidders at the last two auctions have already been handed over the keys of the shops, while the transfer procedure from the old market in Hamriya to the new market was under way, he noted.

He told the traders that in the coming two to three months, their cooperation with the municipality would be most important to complete the shifting of the market on time, and added that the shifting should be completed by the end of this year or by the beginning of next year.

More shops will be auctioned today and these will be available for public services, health clinic, restaurant and cafeteria, in addition to 11 stores at the storage complex area.
