Answer to the main question?
“Do Shopkeepers feel threatened by online shopping”
Local shopkeeper – Ravi Gada
“No. I am not threatened by online
shopping. According to me, people would
definitely prefer local shopping more as I
believe people would like to touch, feel,
smell and definitely try the object before
they would buy it.
Local shopkeeper – Ram Verma
I do not feel threatened by the
online shopping web sites as I
feel people like to touch and feel
the things they buy and they
might feel worried if they buy an
expensive thing online.
As per our survey:
Indians do not prefer online shopping as they would like to touch, feel, smell and
try the object before they buy it.
The rate of cyber crime is high.
For buying things online there is no proper interaction with the shopkeeper.
People also might get cheated while shopping online.
And of course they prefer bargaining for what they would want to buy.
So we conclude that local shopkeepers in our area Goregaon (west), Mumbai are
not threatened by online shopping.
