We all fall into at least one of these types of shoppers and may even belong into 2 or all. I myself fall into the brand-name shopper (not necessarily high end brands), online shopper & emotional shopper. I don’t usually bargain hunt because I don’t have the patience to go through tightly packed racks. There’s something about the chaotic layout that just doesn’t make me want to shop. I’m more of the leisurely shopper and I tend to walk around a shop studying every corner and rack before I decide what I need & want. I tend to shop on a weekday when the store is not as busy as it would be on weekends.
The Deal Hunter: This shopper you’d usually find at Winners on a weekly basis going through tightly packed racks for that Prada piece that was once $700 but is now down to $200. This shopper however tends to buy things simply because they are on sale and doesn’t necessarily need it.
The Online Shopper: Online shopping is easy and convenient but the trick is to try them on in a store first and score a better deal by ordering it online. Online shopping is also great for snagging those one of a kind and hard to find pieces that you just have to have. I love shopping online because I usually tend to forget that I’ve purchased something online and when it comes it’s great surprise.
The Buying-Things-Without-Trying-Them-On Shopper: This type of shopper is usually too lazy to wait in line and try on things so they buy and try at home with the intention of returning them if they don’t fit but never get around to actually doing it. This shopper usually ends up with a closet full of clothes that don’t really fit right.
The Brand-name Shopper : This shopper tends to gravitate towards the same stores & brands for most of their shopping needs. This type of person can usually be found shopping at stores such as Banana Republic, H&M & GAP.
The Thrift/Vintage Shopper: This shopper loves worn in vintage pieces with history and you can usually find them at the local Salvation Army or thrift shop.
The Emotional Shopper: This shopper tends to shop when they are down, hoping to cheer themselves up with a little retail therapy. We’ve all done this at some point in time but these purchases are usually made with little regard to your bank account.
