A: The customers just give Rs.20-30 above cost price that is incurred to us Q: So isn’t it a loss situation for you when the customer tries to lowers the price too much? A: No no we never go in a loss situation Q: where does all this stock come from? A: This all comes from abroad and is all used Q: and people buy it? A: Those who want to buy it... do buy it Q: Who comes here more: Men or Women? A: Both come here Q: and who tries to lower the price? A: Women Q: Why? A: They have a habit of trying to lower the price Q: Who do you listen to more? A: I listen to both of them Q: Why do you listen to them? What is it with women that you actually give the product to them at a favorable price? A: No, we give it to customers accordingly. If they still want to buy it they can. If they don’t we can’t do our loss Q: Lets say if for you a thing was for Rs. 50 and the customer wants to buy on te same rate, do you ever let that happen?

    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.
