The prices of trunks, and ‘chop boxes’ have surged as new students report to various Senior High Schools nationwide.
Citi News’ visit to major vending points of these essential senior high school items in Accra showed many parents rushing in to complete shopping for their wards, but some had to leave with disappointment due to the high cost.

They said their suppliers complain that the cost of producing the trunks has increased significantly, hence the need to adjust their prices upwards.
