The celebration of sacrifice is a blessing for traders of traditional satay-roasted equipment. In the last few days, a number of satay fuel equipment traders in the City of Kediri claimed to have been flooded with shipments of skewers, charcoal firewood and satai grills.
Yus, a fuel equipment trader, said that the number of community requests was high, especially charcoal and satai wood. Yus held his merchandise at the traditional market in Bandar Village, Mojoroto District, Kediri City. He claimed to have taken a sip of the sweetness of the sacrificial meat.
“Yes, now the demand is up 20 percent. If it is normal, I usually sell 1 to 2 quintals of charcoal wood, now 2 more quintals. The average increase is 20 percent,” Yus said, Wednesday, August 22, 2018.
Yus said, despite high demand, the price of satai fuel equipment was relatively stable. One bunch of satai sticks sold for Rp. 3,500, Rp. 4,000 for charcoal, and Rp. 10,000 for the cheapest grill, and the most expensive 20 thousand for better quality.
Prices are still normal as usual, “he said.
Yus continued, most of those who bought this satay grill equipment came from the general public, retailers and Islamic boarding schools.
If it is a boarding school, usually long before Eid al-Adha, it will be ordered first, if it is a normal citizen, it is only when we get together with family, “he said.
Yus revealed, sate sticks are usually supplied from the Trenggalek area. Yus claimed to have run his business for 18 years.
“Charcoal firewood from Bojonegoro, as well as a place for the grill, is obtained in the Tulunganggung area,” Yus concluded.
