A: Yes at times I do buy it if my mother requires. Q: Are you aware about the fact that there is a government rate list for fruits & vegetables? A: Yes I recently came to know about it. Q: So do u think they charge more than the rate list? A: If they see there is no rate list in the customers hand then yes, they do charge more but then I take out the rate list from my pocket and they are then bound to charge that price only. Q: Do u come here with a specific list in mind of the items that u have to purchase? A: Not really, I just roam around and buy whatever I like. Q: Do u have a specific budget in mind when u come to Sunday market? A: No, there’s no use of coming with a budget since I don’t have a specific list in mind. Q: After getting a good bargain over here, do u go around telling everyone that u struck such a good deal at Sunday market? A: Yes of course I like to tell people that I saved up on so much money Q: Do u get a sense of achievement after striking a good deal? A: It’s a good feeling because it makes us realize how these shopkeepers are making fools out of us by charging such a high price. Q: Where else do u shop from, apart from Sunday market? A: Millennium Mall and Dolmen Mall Q: Do u bargain there also? A: I try to but since they have fixed prices, they don’t have a culture of bargaining. Q: Do you live close by or do you come from far off? A: I come all the way from Gulistan-e-Jauhar. 78

Q: How do u start off with your bargaining? In a soft way or harsh way?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
