Hypothesis 1 People buy high order goods in Cardiff where as in Tredegar they buy low order goods. High order goods are items that are not bought often and can be very expensive e.g. cars and beds where as low order goods are items that are usually needed regularly and that tend to less expensive e.g. bread and milk. The high order goods we included in our questionnaire were: * Furniture * Electrical items * Clothes The low order goods we included in our questionnaire were: * Newspapers * Milk * Food I believe that most people who shop in Tredegar will buy their low order goods locally due to the problems of the transport of the bags that may become heavy and bulky especially when buying food likes fruit and vegetables. ...read more.
