Unformatted text preview: A: it has been only 6 months since I shifted. I come here around twice a month. Q: What have you purchased during these visits? A: shirts and stuff Q: Do you purchase branded or used items? A: used, which are branded? Even if there are new items available they wont be branded. Q: Do you visit this market alone or with family? A:I come here with my friends, sometimes with family too. Q: Do your friends also purchase used items? A: I think in this market most of the stuff is used. Very few stuff is new, like I just noticed this shop selling new items but it wasn’t there before. Q: What is the motive behind you shopping here? is it entertainment ? shopping experience ? Outing? Spending time with friends? A: in the beginning we used to come just like that for an hour or so but then we realized the quality of shirts and other products available here which were branded like zara , armani etc which if you go buy from the market would be very expensive but here you would find it at a cheaper price. You would have to look for them though.we come here for a whole day and after looking for 2-3 hours we might find one that we like so we’ll get that. Q: do you afterwards go and tell people that you’ve gotten this from Sunday bazaar when they compliment you? A: well a lot of people have complimented me for shirts ive bought from here. My friends do get to know that it’s a used shirt but normally people avoid telling. Q: so you don’t tell anyone that its used ? A: well ive never talked in such detail with anyone but I believe if anyone asks me I wont tell them except if they are my cousins or close family relatives whom I will tell. Q: do you tell your family members? A: yeah, they already know that obviously. Q: what about your cousins and uncles ? 125 A;I keep on telling them to come visit who don’t live near and see for themselves Q: Do you bargain? A: Yes Q: if I tell you a shirt is for rs 1000. How much would you be willing to pay for it? How would you start the discussion with the retailer? Would you befriend him? Hello-hi ? Would you be aggressive? A: well ill start talking to him, butter him up and then ask him to give me the shirt at the price I want. Q: how much would you pay for a rs 1000 shirt? A: well I know that a good quality branded shirt I would easily get for rs 200-250. Once I liked a shirt so much that I even gave rs300 to the retailer, otherwise mostly I get it within 250. Q: do you negotiate or bargain a lot ? or if the vendor is not willing to listen you just leave him and move on ? A: I give like 2-4 minutes to him and if he isn’t listening I move on. I wont stick with him and keep buttering him unlike my cousins who spend a lot of time at a single vendor and make a good relationship with him. That is not my attitude, I don’t tend to keep a relationship with the retailer....
