My most recent shopping expeirence:
Buying a blender at a Shopping Centre:
* Very limited selection of two blenders on shelf.
* Unit in stock is invariably in a box which has been slashed, crunched, taped back again (likely a return).
* Often missing parts upon opening at home.
* Almost R20 for the privilege of parking.
* Staff have zero knowledge.
* Staff stand in groups chatting about the weekend.
* Contagious shoppers with filthy handkerchiefs and TB-like coughs.
* Dodging beggars inside the centre that require formula for their babies.
Buying at Kalahari or similar
* A selection of 30+ blenders to choose from.
* Free delivery to my door.
* Item and packaging looks brand new.
* Secure, crime free.
* Identical product is cheaper than shopping centre
It's a no-brainer
Try to buy shoes and clothes online....
Even with the same manufacturers and shoe sizes, you still don't get as good a fit, as at a real store.
