Abstract or Introduction
In today’s society time is becoming more and more limited. People run from one point to another, do many things at the same time and pay less attention to the important things in each’s life. While shopping for their groceries the customer's mind is already somewhere else and the variety and quantity of the products in a supermarket are overwhelming.
Many groceries used this circumstance to their advantage, and out of it created their principle of discount shopping.
