Unformatted text preview: A: I feel angry Q: Let’s say you’ve bought this bag for a price you wanted to and then you find out that actually in the market it is priced much higher. How would you feel? A: (Wife) definitely it feels good as we bought a thing at a good price Q: Do you purchase grocery (vegetables/fruits) from here? A: Yes we go there a lot! Q: So do you buy according to the rate sheet? A: Truthfully, I bargain there too.... and if they don’t agree on bargaining we at times have to threat them asking them to show the rate sheet. On the rate sheet the categories are specified according to #1 or #2 quality. There is no base to actually what #1 quality of fruit/vegetable is. Even if a retailer has #3 quality he will quote his commodity as #1 and show you a higher rate so 108 it doesn’t have an effect on it but on some things it does have an effect. People who usually buy groceries have an idea on the items they are purchasing and this market is expensive Q: Do you think that this market being situated in Defence is expensive? A: not really. Yes on the grocery items side it is expensive but rest of the market it is not. Q: Do you go to other shopping markets too? Closed bazaars?
