Is the American shopping attitude morphing into that of China? I work at a high end men's boutique, and even with our clientele ranging from producers to agents to doctors and lawyers I still feel like I have a little hut in the middle of a Chinese market. The infamous recession is slowly evolving our shopping culture into a climate identical to the Chinese black market. If the American culture is demanding eco-friendly and American made products there is no room for haggling. If society is against the man, then how come our preferred shopping habits are killing small business owners? The conflicting desires among consumers today are throwing independent retailers into an even more chaotic downturn. Next time you are temped to haggle, just remember our marketplace will surly reap the benefits.
