Now, the quickest way to make money as a diligent person, who has little income for startup is to opena provision store, you could call it minimart or grocery store. This is somewhat like a multi purpose store, with varieties of household items that people always need urgently.

Makurdi, the benue state capital, seem growing a lot, daily and its population follows along, maybe because of its security and business friendly environment. On today’s post, we recommend you 5 locations in makurdi very suitable for provision store business. Let’s go.


 

5. WADATA

The wadata area of makurdi, which is a slum by mere looking, surprising have shops that sell the rarest of items you cant easily find in wadata, wurukum, modern market and north bank areas of the city. 

It also have the highest muslim concentration in the city, and in general a high population of people. Now I will focus on the high concentration of muslims and talk about it as an added advantage of running a provision store in makurdi. The benue state capital. The muslim community are people who love buying provision things,

 and only the civilized muslims buy things in bulk, the common muslim prefer going to a provision store and buying just what he needs for that particular time alone. Tomorrow, he would still come, now the basis here is, someone who buys things in bits, actually spends more than someone who buys In bulk….. am not explaining this, every business minded person should know about this. So having a provision store at the wadata area of makurdi guarantees a steady patronage and high rate of income.

 

4. HIGH LEVEL,makurdi

The high level remains the first place in makurdi to start recording high development, because the Nigerian railway had a terminal or a stop station at high level, when it was still operational across benue state. Trains conveying over 500 passengers usually stopped here, in the good OBASANJO old days and passengers flocked out within a 30 mins break to stretch up and buy food items, to sustain during the slow journey. This gave high level residents a platform to start business and trap money at this location.

Money coming from many parts of Nigeria was stucked here, residents became rich and eventually developed this area. You could literally see old developmental buildings here. It is a good location for provision store business because, even as the Benue rail became non functional, the markets here ‘RAILWAY MARKET’ is still functional and many people still flock high level, a good location can give you 5,000 gain daily, at the start.




3. OPPOSITE BENUE STATE UNIVERSITY

Benue state university is still one of the few state universities that are more advanced and have a stronger Alumni than some federal universities, the most advanced Nigerian state university been lagos state university. The benue state university, has a crazy population anytime school is on and you could literally watch you #20 gain per item, hit #100,000 gain monthly. Now my point is, I don’t really advise people doing business right there on the school campus, because, Nigerian schools can get locked at any time, and its usually good when you however sell to a bulk population, when school is on. So the best

option is, you setting a shop, where you can sell to students when school is on and also sell when they are not around. Such a good location is opposite benue state university, the busy GBOKO – MAKURDI road passes here and getting a shop there exposes you to travelers and students. This location, I recommend.

 

2. WELFARE QUARTERS

Welfare quarters is one location in makurdi still developing fast, grew in a couple of months and is still growing, I remember in 2019, my dad was offered a piece of land here @200k, we went there, it was all bushy, he didn’t buy, right now, a land at welfare quarters is from 5 million naira upward, or ‘COMMOT BODY’. Welfare quarters is solidly residential, like omo, solid residence, that’s where workers stay with their families, and move into makurdi town for work. So it is at the makurdi outskirts, going towards otukpo. 

Setting up a shop here, you must have it in mind that, listen carefully, if 50 shops are lined up in welfare quarters, one after the other, all will still sell, provided they all have what people want. But the moment a worker who is stressed up, walks into your store, and cant find what he or she wants, nigga, they aint coming back, because there are a lot of shops there, but once you are loaded, just add prices the way you want, they will buy, money deyyyyyyy.



 

1. WURUKUM

Doing business in wurukum, makurdi is for friendly people, because I will be plain, this place has a high concentration of cultists, so you will make friends with them. But in makurdi, you will experience the highest patronage here, because the night life in wurukum is something else,

people stay awake till 4:00 am, and buy 5:30 am, shops are opened again, a 22hrs fully
functional place. Having a provision store here guarantees high patronage. My first shop in makurdi was in wurukum, at Onitsha street, a POS shop, I made over 5,000 daily, a provision store next to my shop, made over, 10,000 daily. I left this location simply because am someone young people love coming around me, and these cultists where so much around me. They weren’t looking forward to harm me, but, omo, please lets leave senior men area for senior men, WE MOVE!!!!!!

 

Ok our readers, this our recommendation for good business locations in makurdi, you can use your google maps to check out these areas, and any other business will be good at these places too.
