A shopping festival began at the Canteen Stores Department (CSD) of Dhaka Cantonment yesterday.

Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Hasan Mashhud Chowdhury inaugurated the festival titled 'Great Festive Shopping.' A total of 23 organisations are taking part in the festival which will continue till February 2, says a press release.

Established in 1922, CSD is the oldest departmental chain store in the country. It has 24 branches all over the country.

The main objectives of the festival are to promote CSD goods and introduce CSD to the people living outside the cantonment. CSD sells consumer products with a lower price than that of other shops. It has been planned to open CSD branches to civil area.
