1. What do you think are the advantages of buying things from shops rather than markets?
Well, the obvious one is the shop is that a permanent location while the market is not. I guess it depends on what you’re buying though, but for example, would you buy domestic appliances from a market? Imagine you had a problem with it and never saw the person who sold it to you again. Shops don’t depend on the weather either; I mean if it was raining I definitely wouldn’t go strolling round a market looking for things to buy. With a shop, that’s not really a problem. I suppose you usually get a better selection of goods on a shop as well, because they can carry more stock.

2. How does advertising influence what people choose to buy? Is this true for everyone?
I think advertising only influences a certain group of people, normally younger people who are easily influenced. Older people don’t seem to find advertising as interesting. They seem to buy things based on their needs rather than some smart and catchy marketing campaign. The big brand names are expert at trying to influence young people with their slick advertisements and publicity and they are always trying to convince us that we need to have the newest and latest of everything, even if the item we have at the moment is perfectly good. But that’s the economy now isn’t it? If we stop consuming, we will have serious economic problems.
3. Do you think that any recent changes in the way people live have affected general shopping habits? Why is this?
Absolutely, this generation and the internet are changing the game totally. Almost half population in this country have a smartphone or other mobile device now and most of them buy things on the internet. We can already see the decline of business in the high street in many cities. Lots of small shops have already gone out of business and even some large chain stores couldn’t compete with online shopping.
It was the same some years ago when we first started to see the development of out-of-town hypermarkets, and now they are beginning to suffer too thanks to the amount of online shopping. Let’s face it, most people are quite lazy. If you give them options they’ll usually choose the one which means not having to leave the house or get in the car and travel – that’s the internet. It’s hard to beat it, and yes, it’s changed shopping habits totally.
