Q: Do u come here with ur family or alone? A: Family comes here for grocery shopping so I help them with that. Q: Do u bargain over there? A: Yes I do bargain b/c I have the rate list that the government has provided so whoever quotes a higher price, I just take out that list and show it to them. Q: So do u think they charge more than the rate list? A: Yes, if they know that the other person doesn’t have the rate list then they quote a higher price to them to make a fool out of them. Q: So apart from grocery and jeans do u buy something else? A: Yes at times if I come across a good electronic item or a poster then I buy it but that’s very rare. Q: Do u come here with a specific list in mind of the items that u have to purchase? A: I just have a specific list of grocery that I have to purchase and that too is prepared by my mother but no other list. Q: Do u have a specific budget in mind when u come to Sunday market? A: I have a specific budget just for grocery not other random stuff. 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: If someone asks me where I got it from then I do tell them that I got it from Sunday market and if they ask how much I got it from them I’ll tell them the discounted price only, won’t boast about the fact that I bargained. Q: Do u get a sense of achievement after striking a good deal? A: Yes a bit but it’s understood that the shopkeeper has made profit out of that, its’ not like he’s going to sell me something which will be a loss for him. Q: Where else do u shop from, apart from Sunday market? A: I shop from Park Towers, Forum and the factory outlets that are near Atrium mall in Saddar Q: Do u bargain there also? A: No, those kinds of shops have price tags fixed on them, which can’t be negotiated. Whereas, at Sunday market there are no price tags which is why people bargain a lot. Respondent # 12 77

    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.
