Household items are very very essential products for the smooth running of a home. The type of product differs in various decades. For eg 50 years back, firewood or coal was the most important item for cooking. This was bought in huge quantities for cheaper rates and stocked in store rooms. Present day house wives book gas cylinders in advance so that the cooking is not hampered. Thus type of products vary but shopping is necessary. Also the quest for shopping at very low prices continues till today.
Grocery shopping involves most important the staples like rice, wheat, pulses oil. These products are mostly stocked for a month, 3 months or even for a year. The shopping is usually done just after the harvest season is over. The market is flooded with new rice, pulses & wheat but at different time of the year. Previously people used to buy these grocery staples according to variety, color, size of grain and the last was the price. If product was excellent price was no consideration at all. The discount or offer was based on quality of the product.
Today customers shop for one or two brands that are popular for rice wheat etc. Customers do not have much knowledge about varieties,their characteristics etc. They go with the look & feel of the product and if price is reasonable then they purchase it.

The shop owner knew about deaths,marriages,births etc of the customer’s families. This was management practice of the highest level. Nowadays companies appoint relationship managers,executives who perform the same duties.
