Q: who goes for more bargaining? Males or females? A: Females actually, males do nothing but stand in the back. Q: But why do females do it? A: that’s because they want to save their husband’s money. Somewhat. It is their habit. Q: What technique should be employed for effective bargaining? What would get you to lower the price? A: nothing, everyone’s equal in our eyes and we respect our profession and shopkeepering. If anyone is not interested, we ask them to leave. Q: if someone is dressed as from the upperclass, would you raise the price? A: No, I won’t. Q: are you a pathan? A: No I am a sindhi. Q: so if someone starts talking in sindhi, would you offer them lower rates? A: We do start talking in sindhi but would not offer them lower rates; same rates for everyone. Q: Not even a bit? A: you know how it goes, if the customer gets to know that he is from the same race; then loyalty develops. Q: So does the language matter whilst the bargain? A: No it doesn’t. (I did not get the continuing part). People with the same language are good as it is easy and hassle free, with them, to communicate. Q: Do you think the market condition is good? A: market is good by the grace of God. Retailer # 9 Gender: Male Age bracket: 30-35 Profession: Selling Clothing items for men/women/children Q. Since how long have you been working here? A.

    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.
