Unformatted text preview: 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 APPENDIX C: Retailer Interview Transcripts 138 Retailer # 1 Gender: Male Age bracket: 40-45 Profession: Selling Used Branded Shirts for Men Assalam-ualkium! We are students of SZABIST and we are conducting a research based on bargaining specifically in open air retail markets like Sunday Bazaar. 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 find shops due to the bigger size of this bazaar now and buy things from elsewhere if they don’t find their specific retailer. Is there a chance of losing your customers now? A: The problem is not that we are losing customers. The bazaar has grown so vast in size… the bazaar is now better due to the shade and tiled floors… Q: So the income is not being generated according to these renovations…. A: It is not the income… Here, it is all about quality. If we don’t bring in branded quality items then it is a problem… This bazaar is famous for “Luundaa”. You can find shoes, purse, pant and shirt specially…Shirts, trousers etc.. Q: Is this market used item dominated? A: No! its all Luundaa. This is all Luunda stock over here. In Luunda, you can buy crockery items, purse, spoons, utensils, teacups, as you have seen on the other side, toys for children. The reason it is so is because of where this stuff is made. That is what a person looks at when buying a product from here. Only because of this reason, luunda is liked here Q: Tell me, do men come here more or women, considering this is a shirts shop for men? A: Over here.. Women come over here the most…Women also come here. They just don’t randomly go to anywhere else. From medical to teaching to highly educated… all women come here. Foreigners too... It doesn’t matter that the men (retailers) are dealing over here.. they are more intelligent then us, more educated then us.. they know… there are a lot of things happening over here like harassing and well educated females tend to ignore it.. it is not that they are scared....
