Q: Do you have a predefined budget when coming to such markets? A: There is always a “mindset” that I wont spend more than a certain amount Q: So what were you planning to buy from here since it is your first visit and you don’t know much about this market? A: Shoes and shirts Q: So what items were you planning to buy: secondhand or brand new? A: See in shoes it doesn’t make a difference as long as the shoe is good Q: and how would you define good? A: the shoes should be comfortable and durable Q: Let’s say I quote the price of the shoes as Rs. 1000. How much will you buy it for? A: Half price Q: So how does the negotiation process begin between you and the retailer? A: Yes they are… not mostly during the day.. But usually at night they are more interested to make a sale Q: Let’s say, that I quote an item’s price as Rs. 1000. What price will you quote for it to the retailer? A: We start on a good note with “Salam Dua”. Then you ask for the price of good and then renegotiate it. If he doesn’t agree you move forward to another shop and buy it from there. They already know who will buy or not Q: Do you visit other markets as well? A: No we’ve never been there… Q: So where do you all usually shop at? A: Bahadrabad and tariq road since It is very near to our house Q: Do you think that there is there a difference in prices of such places and Sunday Bazaar? A: Of course! It is more expensive there Q: But don’t you think that since Sunday Bazaar is located in a posh locality of Karachi, there could be a price difference…? A: Yes area does effect prices of items but over here the good s are less expensive in comparison Q: So will you go home and tell you family and friends that you bought these shoes from Sunday bazaar? A: Obviously… When we would wear it people would ask us how much we bought it for and from where we got it Q: Will tell you female friends that you’ve bought the shoes from here if they compliment you? A: No I will tell them I’ve bought it from somewhere else Q: Why so? A: Just for a good impression 110

    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.
