There are various reasons why i like shopping at Edmark shop, which are as follows.

The price of commodities are affordable

The price of their products seems to be cheaper than most retailing shops, they don't involved high charges in their goods, customers can easily, purchase a product, it's not like most super market were there is always a fixed price in their goods.

The image above show how a customer is making transaction, because of the affordability of the products been purchased.

Their services to customers are very friendly

All the sellers in the shop attend to customers in a very polite and nice way they treat customers with a lot of dignity, because that is where they make their money from, they then to be very nice to customers so as to gain more patronage.

I like shopping at Edmark store because they treat customers in a very friendly and polite way.
Edmark shop treat their customers in a very friendly manner, even in

30% discount (bonus )


Edmark shop usually give their customers bonus, it's a nice strategy they applied so as to have more customers, because the more the patronage the more profit they will make profit in their business, so their gift discount on the products to encourage and motivate customers to always buy from them.

Edmark shopping centre give 30% discount on their products, that is the main reason customers all over my city come to patronize them

Also the more products a customer purchase the more discounts he or she will receive, it's their business strategy to gain more patronage from their customers

From the above image you can see customers on struggling to purchase commodities so as to get the bonus of 30% discount.

Short distance location

Edmark store is very close to where i live.
It is not far from where i stay,
I enjoyed shopping at Edmark store because it's very near to where i base i don't need to stress myself walking a long distance, to buy goods, i don't need to pay transportation fees.

Allocation of goods on credit

Customers can collect goods on credit
I love shopping at Edmark store, because they usually give their customers the privilege to collect goods on credit, i could remembered last month i own 2000naira debt.

All i did was just to write my name on the debtors book, so they have been of great help to me any time i don't have money, i can collect goods on credit.

Words of encouragement

I will like everyone to keep patronizing, traditional retail, because they are the back-bone of our society, without them, it's will difficult to get goods on credit, also have 30% discount, as we all know most super market spring up from a small retail shop, we should keep patronizing traditional retail so as to make them grow in to a big super market.
