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.
