City One is a wholesale market where several wholesale shops are selling tudung, abaya’s, sembahyang accessories and lot more. It is a multiple story building and most of the retailers around Jalan Tar buy their stocks from this market. This is only a wholesale market so for individual shopping it is useless to go there.
Roshni bazar is another small arcade where several small shops in narrow lanes are waiting for you to choose the fabrics of your choice. It is a good market to medium bulk purchase but still for bigger quantity city one plaza is the best. Roshni bazar is also good for bargain and single piece selling is also available.
