Which is best for shopping? Shopping mall or road side shopping. I like to purchase in shopping mall. because i got all thing n one place in reasonable rates. There is no need to bargaining. his thing saves my time. And all things are very good there. At road side shopping we lose our time in bargaining. So i do not like to purchase anything on the roadside.

I can only do road side shopping when I’m in my parent’s town because it’s just a small town and no mall to hit. Hehehe.. Of course, when I’m in the city I go to malls. Though there are still bargain stores but I prefer mall.

Different purchases are made at different locations. For example, I buy some little worthless items at market, while big, expensive ones at shopping mall. Luckily enough, there is a giant retail and whole sale market called WUAI market. It enjoys the fame of the biggest wholesale market in the northeastern three provinces. Dealers from all over the country come to this place to wholesale. products bought here are sometimes good, sometimes bad qualified. to disguish, you need to wipe your eyes bright. Small items such as socks, stocking, combs, towels, gloves, pretend leather belts and bags can be bought here. for instance, women wear lots of stockings. after bargaining, a pair of good stocking can be bought at 5.00 per pair, which is sold at at least 12.00 at supermarket or more expensive at shopping centers. so we normally buy at least 3 to 5 pairs of this. Socks are cheap too, only 50$ that of at the big stores. Once good deal i made last year was a pretend leather belt, which was sold at around 110.00. I was lucky enough to find exactly the identical belt at that market, the same color, the same pattern, same material at only 25.00. The moment I got the belt, I hurried away. you can imagine how delighted I was at the time. One more good deal was a black and dark green velvet scarf. It was 330.00 at the same shopping center, which I bought at only 90.00. But as to clothes, shoes, handbags, and cosmetics, I never buy them in other places, only department stores. the quality and service are ensured at such place. and they accept return at any time.

Bargaining has always been a good thing to save up. It surely takes some of your time. For shopaholics this won't be a problem. Malls have the best shops and merchandise you can get, as with the bazaars that we see on the outside, along the sidewalks, it's good to have the window shopping too. Products are way cheaper and half the price from the malls. I don't mind buying few stuff along the sidewalks, but I need something really important and something lasting, then I'd go to malls. Warranty and quality is much better, I don't mind paying more bucks on it. And not to mention, it's comfortable and convenient too.

hardly would i buy anything by the roadside. the quality of what they are selling are questionable, in the first place. second, if you found that the product bought is defective, there is no way that you have the item changed on the following day or even just hours after the purchase. thirdly, those who are vending at the sidewalks are mostly of questionable conduct and personalities themselves. at the mall, everything is in order. one can buy everything that's needed under the safetiness of comfortable shopping. everything is there, so there is no need to be hopping from one place to another. food, makeup, clothing, shoes, bags, jewelry...name it and they have it. and, everything one buys from the mall, carries at least a weeklong warranty. if there are complaints, you can be sure that they have some assigned personnel for this. i do not see any reason threfore, why i should buy anything at all from the sidewalk peddlers.
