Consumer. Shopper. Buyer. No matter what you call yourself merchants and service providers look at as one thing – a customer. As somebody with money in your pocket, you have something they want. So why just hand it over to them? Why not make them work for it. Why not demand that they go the extra mile to satisfy your needs? Why not press them for the finest in quality and service? You have that power. If you don’t have choice, then the free market in your area has broken down. Why not wield your consumer power to its fullest. Get the most out of your dollar.
