The type of buyers, the shops they buyfrom, and the products they purchase varyacross geographical territories and the economicspectrum of the consumers.
As Shopping becomes a ritual rather then apast time for the people ofPakistan, therefore marketers are providingthe consumer with more bundle of theproduct choices they want. Marketers have changed the Product’sposition in the mind of consumers. Theyprovided the consumers with a diverse rangeof Brands of just one product. Marketer place their products in the BigMalls e.g., Hyper Star, Metro, Mall of Lahoreetc rather than just placing it on one singleglossary store.

Achievement Orientation Progress is linked to thevalues reviewed earlier andthe central belief thatpeople can always improvethemselves—thattomorrow will be betterthan today. Progress often means theacceptance of change newproducts or servicesdesigned to fulfillpreviously unsatisfiedneeds

Consumer feel’s the need toeconomize the manager mayalso down the high pricedproducts to the medium pricesaccording to the situation. E.g., Unilever launch suchproducts which are mainlyaccessible by the middle class.
Saving OrientationSaving is still an inherent ofPakistanis.Most Pakistani Families haveto depend on personalsavings for their living afterretirement and for theirmedical expenses.Saving as a habit prevails inall sections of the society.

E.g., Tanishq is offering Goldon discount rate for thepeople who spend savings onpurchasing jewelry.
