Shopping Experience

I just came from Hong Kong, we had a few hours stop over and headed to Mongkok particularly on their Ladies Night Market. I love night markets and haggling for great bargains. But due to limited time, less than 3 hours I only was able to grab only a few buys. I later on realized I could get the same on an online shop minus the hassle. Like some workwear at the Engelbert Strauss online shop, you could even find items on sale too.

So whether to shop online or at stores have their own pros and cons. For both, there is a need to check different stores first and later on do the purchases. I got a similar blouse that was one third of the price from another store. Talk about too much mark up on their prices. I guess they anticipated customers asking for discounts. I understand that but it was also a turn off to prospective customers. I refuse to buy from those stores who gave me a half price from the original because I don’t expect they will be truthful in their dealings.

The next time I plan to go to shop at Mongkok or any other night markets, I’ll allot at least half a day to shop to my heart’s desire.
