A: I live in Clifton Q: Is there a specific reason that you’ve come only three times to this market? A: I basically come here to browse through the shoes and the chappals (slippers) Q: Do you browse through second hand shoes or the branch new ones? A: I don’t buy the second hand ones but I buy brand new ones Q: But you do look through the second hand ones? A: Of course a person does look at the second hand ones. Just to have a choice and know the price Q: So you just come here for the slippers and the shoes… A: Most of the time .... Uh apart from that I come here, what do you say, I come here for the basic shopping... basic kitchen items Q: So do you come here alone or with someone?

A: No I can’t do it… that’s why I bring my friends so that they do it for me Q: So in your opinion you are not a good bargainer at all? A: No I am not Q: and you think your friends are better bargainers than you? A: Yes Q: What qualities do you think your friends have that makes them a good bargainer? A: They can argue well Q: so for a good bargainer arguing is the best thing to do? A: Yes in order to lower the price Q: Let’s say, that I quote an item’s price as Rs. 1000. How do you think your friends will bargain for that? A: I don’t know. They normally would start from fifty percent. There are so many ‘Pathans’ over here. If the item is for Rs. 100, the will quote it to be for Rs. 200. so you should start at fifty percent and take it for that Q: So normally what other markets do you visit? A: I haven’t visited any other market like Sunday Bazaar. However I do go to Zainab market a couple of times to buy jeans Q: Did you know that a lot of these retailers (selling jeans) are actually from Zainab Market? A: No. I did not know that and jeans I have never bought from here Q: Do you discuss your purchases from Sunday market with your friends? A: Of course I would. If I get something good from here, I would want my friends to get the same Q: In your opinion, are women better bargainers or men? A: Yes women are better bargainers Q: and why is that? A: Because they can talk more Q: So is talking more important in bargaining? A: Yes. That’s a key point in bargaining Q: And what do you look in a product to judge its value? A: The look and feel. And its quality and lastly its price Q: Do you plan on shopping from here more often? A: Uhmmm… If I get good things… If I get things of my type and what I like than definitely I would come here Thank you so much for your time! Respondent # 46 Assalam-ualkium!

    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.
