Shopping Frenzy on the Eve of Ramadan

On the eve of Ramadan, yesterday, people went into a shopping frenzy. These photos were taken at Lulu Hypermarket along D-Ring Road, Doha, Qatar.
The Lulu Hypermart has always been popular with shoppers and this sight unusual during rush hours. But yesterday, it was like this for the whole day from the time the Hypermart opened at 8:00 a.m. to the time it closed. Cashiers / check-out counters all had long lines of shopping carts filled with groceries that to fall in line would mean being able to pay for your purchases will take a lot of minutes, possibly up to an hour. Paying by credit card has also become inconvenient because getting a connection has become difficult due to the onslaught of shoppers at any given time.
Cheers, alexdpx
