Is supermarket culture conducive to unnecessary purchases?Today, supermarkets and malls are mushrooming in the cities and there is a shift of buyers from neighborhood provision shop to these glittering markets. These places are especially attractive to children and ladies who generally have a fancy for shopping.
When we go to these places then there is a charm of attached entertainments like the adjacent cinema hall or eating place sometimes even inside the mall itself. These are quite good for passing a lot of time in entertainment to shopping activities.
When we purchase from these places we find that there are many schemes and discounts going on and we in a momentary impulse fill our shopping cart with many things which have something free with them. At the payment counter we feel that we have taken more than our requirement but ignore it at that time. This type of shopping creates multiplicity of items in the house and sometimes we buy a few less used or even unnecessary items.
Do you also feel that this culture is creating such buying habits in us? What is your opinion?
