Sample Answer

Well, I’m really into shopping . Going for shopping not only increases my brand awareness and fulfils my basis needs but also acts as a stress buster. Most of the time i prefer offline shopping but once in a blue moon i go for online shopping.

I precisely remember a couple of years ago i went to the market which is within the walking distance of my house. There is a clothing store in the market that is renowned for having a wide variety of clothes. I visited this store. Actually owing to the festive season the attractive discount on every purchase was being offered by the shopkeeper.

I also made up mind to buy a dress from this store. But when i entered the store, much to my surprise and annoyance the store was overcrowded with customers. The first problem which i experienced during shopping was that i had to wait for a huge amount of time to select a dress of my choice as all the salesman were busy dealing with many customers.

Secondly, I couldn’t try it on because the trail room was busy. so i couldn’t check if it fits me. Now it was the time to foot the bill. Again i had to wait for a handsome amount of time since many others also were waiting for paying, their bills. But, during my entire shopping one thing which i liked and will be worth mentioning here is that owner and the workers were easy-going people, they were dealing with the customers very nicely and happily.

After reaching home when i tried this dress on, honestly i was looking heavenly beautiful after wearing it, it fitted me perfectly. Furthermore if i talk about my overall experience i must say, it was fabulous in terms of the quality and cost of the product which i bought. However waiting for an extended period of time for a specific task was exhausting which made me feel really passed off.

So this was an awful experience i had while shopping in a physical store.
