Is brand the first priority to you when you buy somethings from the supermarket? I think I will look at the design first and then the brand name for most of the things because i think the brand name can indicate the quality. Can you share that what kind of goods you will buy depends on the brand and what kind of goods you will buy depends on other variables and what are the variables?

Brand name is an absolute priority for me! At least this is the case when it comes to purchasing trainers. I just love the brand name Nike and I won't wear any other kind of trainers other than Nike. Money is an issue obviously and a good pair of Nikes can be very expensive. Still, I will save up if I have to for the pair that I want. As regards clothes, I'm not too concerned about the brand, I will virtually wear anything. I need a suit, can you believe that I don't even have a suit! I will definitely be going for a branded suit I think! As I cannot afford a suit right now, I may have to end up hiring one! Andrew

As long as it is a brand i have heard of before then i'm good, I do have to have the best brands but I do like to regognize what I am buying.

for grocery shopping, no brand names mean nothing to me. for me, i have two vices, when it comes to tennis shoes and purses, i have to have brand names. now, this is a recent change. i used to buy whatever bag and whatever shoes i saw. but over time, i realized that these are key items to me, i use them daily, they are important. so now, its only coach bags and only nike/k-swiss shoes...

I don't care about brands for most things. I was grocery shopping this past weekend and had a coupon for pillsbury crescent rolls. I went to pick them up and then realized that I would be paying at least 50 cents more with using the coupon if I bought them rather than the generic brand...so I went generic. I don't buy generic spighetti sauces, or canned spighetti...but most other things are fine. If looking to purchase clothing, I just go with the styles I like. I don't brand shop.
