The Korvon market is specialized in selling clothes, shoes, materials both wholesale and retail.
The Korvon fish was established in 2002 and from the day of its formation belongs to the family of the Tajik billionaire – the former chairman of the Rudaki district – Mr. Hol Mashrabov.

The history of the market is connected with the forced closure of the markets “Chumabozor” and “Sakhovat” that worked in the sale of things. After the closure of the market, Chumabozor in its territory was formed Afrontok, which was also transferred to the territory of the Rudaki district in 2015.
The conditions in the Corvón market are not luxurious! Sellers in summer sit under hangars that are hot enough, and in the winter they earn a bouquet of sickness, arising from severe colds, along with money. Buyers also do not have good conditions for buying and hanging, rains, puddles, cart unlimited, lack of free parking spaces and even a lack of vehicles make up a lot of inconvenience.

If there are so many problems in this market, then why do the people of Tajikistan hurry and work in this market?
The fact is that in this market eats both wholesale and retail and therefore the prices here are relatively 30-50% lower than in other markets of the country. Another reason is that there is a rich choice in this market that you can find almost what you want.
