Why many vendors try to deceive the consumersSometimes back I was needed a plaster for sprain. A pharmacy person gave one with black colour. It was of good use to me. After sometime I went to buy a similar plaster in another pharmacy where I was given in different colour. I asked for a black coloured one. He replied that type has been stopped in supply. I believed and bought what he gave. But it was not of that quality. Later after a gap of two months I went to a medical shop in Madurai for some other medicine where I saw black colour plasters in plenty on the desk. I asked the shop person by telling what I heard through the earlier shop person. She simply showed me that colour plaster also and told both are in market since many decades. She further told me that many vendors prefer to sell the one other than black as it is three rupees more. To make the customers to buy their tactic is to tell like this as the customers would not move to other shop.
Similarly one of friend doctor prescribed a tonic (noted brand)for my brother's daughter. I enquired in two to three medical shops, I told not available with them. Another medical shop person simply told that the company has stopped the tonic. I rang up my doctor he replied that it is very well in the market. Then I went to another medical shop in outskirt, I got it. Suspectedly I saw the manufacturing and expiry date, it was just two months back manufactured.
I do not understand why vendors decieving customers like this.
