Unformatted text preview: Q: So do you bargain even if you come alone? A: yes definitely. Q: Do you boast about it to your family and friends? A: Of course. And bargaining is a part of Sunday bazaar and you should know how to bargain here. If you don’t then it’s your loss (financial). Q: So do you shop only for brand new items or used as well? A: To tell you the truth, I’ve never bought anything from Sunday bazaar in my entire lifetime Q: But you have come here so many times? A: yeah but I just roam around. I’ve never found anything here that’s to my liking (or useful for me). Q:So its an entertainment for you? A: not as such. I come here to accompany my family. Q: So where do you shop normally ? A: I get my stuff from park towers, forum and sometimes zamzama. I only go to the defence Clifton area. The thing is because im in production I have to go to Lahore quetta and such places for drama recordings so I shop where ever find the time and convenience. Q: So when your family shops do they come and talk to you about the bargains they got ? A: not as such. I’m not into i.e. just come here to analyze the crowd. Because I’m back here in Karachi after a long time I had to get some furniture but the furniture here is expensive and no bargaining takes place on furniture. Respondent # 57 Assalam-ualkium!
