the article on men and women's shopping habits and
mark () sentences 1 to 6 T (True) or F (False).
recent survey of shopping habits has discovered
that the vast majority of men buy the same clothes
from the same shop year after year.
Women are far more adventurous. To them, clothes
shopping is exciting, a journey of discovery.
They will go from shop to shop, often not looking
for anything in particular, and not knowing what
they are going to find. They will try things on,
go off to another shop, come back, and try them
on again. At the end of the day, they might come
home with hundreds of pounds worth of clothes
or with absolutely nothing. But for the most part,
it will have been an enjoyable experience.
Men, of course, don't understand this. Just look
at a man accompanying his wife when she goes shopping
for clothes. He looks bored, tired, frustrated.
Compare that with a woman shopping with her female
friend, her sister, her mother.
According to experts, when it comes to shopping
for clothes, men are driven by habit and tradition,
and don't like having to think too much. When
they go shopping, they have something they want
to buy and they go to the shop where they know
they will find it. Once in the shop, they know
exactly where everything is - the shirts, the
jeans, etc - and what brands they will find there.
They don't like uncertainty.
'Men often feel uncomfortable or uncertain when
clothes shopping,' a retailer says. 'A shop that
they know can remove much of that discomfort.
In a smaller shop in particular, the sales assistant
will probably know his customer. He will know
his size, the kind of things he likes. He will
advise him. Most men prefer to buy brands that
they know rather than try something new, but if
the sales clerk has a customer's trust, he may
even suggest something a little different.'
Shop owners will tell you that in these competitive
times, it is essential to attract new customers.
But they also realise the importance of the customers
who come back year after year.
