The International Grand Bazaar in Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, reopened on July 22 for the first time since the deadly riot in the city on July 5.

Customers select commodities at the International Grand Bazaar in Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, July 22, 2009.

Almost half of the 4,000 shops and booths in the bazaar in Urumqi opened at around 11 a.m., and closed for the day at 6 p.m., two and a half hours earlier than usual, said Wuxkur Yunus, deputy manager of the bazaar.

"US fastfood chain stores Kentucky Fried Chicken and Carrefour stores in the bazaar are scheduled to reopen tomorrow when 80 percent of the businesses will be open to customers," said Wuxkur.

The bazaar received only about 200 customers Wednesday, compared with more than 100,000 everyday before the riot, Wuxkur said.

Shop owners said that they depend mainly on tourists for business. However, the tourism industry was badly affected during the riot and the number of tourists dropped significantly.
