A: Yes Q: So do you bargain? A: Yes Q: You also quote a 10% less rate? A: No. Actually I bargain around 50%. Q: How do you do that? A: Well we start off at 50percent and the vendor eventually gives us a discount of 20-25percent. It also depends on the time. If you try to bargain in the morning it won’t be so effective whereas if you come around evening (maghrib) or night (closing time) you might easily get a 50% off quoted price.Atleast 30-40% off Q: Where do you live? A: Clifton Q: Do you come here alone or with family and friends? A: Friends and Family 136

Q: Can you bargain in front of your Family or Friends? A: Yes. No Issues. Q: Do you boast to your family about getting stuff from Sunday bazaar? A: I don’t buy stuff that may seem that I’ve got it from Sunday bazaar. Q: What kind of stuff is excluded? A: Jeans, Shirts, ladies hand bags etc. Previously Shoes too but now only local brands of shoes are available. Q: Do you think bargaining is a necessity or do you do it for entertainment? A: I think it’s a necessity because the vendors always quote a high price. And because we know the market price therefore we would know how much a new levis jeans would cost. For example 3000rs then the used one should not be more than 300rs. Q: Do you come here with a fixed budget? A: No fixed budget or shopping list. We get whatever we like. Q: How do you feel when you buy something at a cheaper price? A: No such feelings because we only buy stuff that we like randomly. No prepurchase decision making. But I know that many people who come here to Sunday bazaar come here with a budget and a shopping list. I think most of the people are from around this locality, someone from Gulshan would never come here. Q: Whats the reason for bringing your friend here? A: The place is new. It’s a completely different experience. Things are not that expensive. The bazaar in itself is different as it is properly constructed. Q: Did you know that Sunday bazaar is Asia’s biggest open air market? A: We had no idea. 137

The interview will take 5- 7 minutes and we will appreciate if you can be a part of this exercise. A: Okay Sure! Can we also record the audio of this interview? A: Yes Q: Since when have you been putting a stall here in Sunday Bazaar? A: It has been almost 6 years now Q: That means that you used to put up a stall in the older version of this bazaar too. Which one do you like more, the older one or the new one? A: If we talk in the context of business, the previous one was a smaller bazaar because of which the public was not in much tension. Now the bazaar has increased in size four times. Previously there were 1100 stalls and now there are 2700 stalls. Now you see there is so much difference Q: We were talking to someone and we found out that the customers find it hard now to

    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.
