Q.-17 The distance of our digjam show room and retailer from your place? The purpose of asking this question was basically to know that whether the DIGJAM brand is easily, available to the end user or he has to travel a long distance for purchase of the fabric. As we observed in the survey about 20% of the customers come from the area of 3 kms . to purchase the fabric from the retailers counter’s counter and 22% of customer comes on an average from 1,2and 4 kms. and 40% of the customers were from more than 4 kms. This can be analyzed in two ways firstly, it can be seen as a strength for the company that it is able to attract its customers not only in local areas but from far areas too. But still on an average 17% of the customer were from the near or adaptive places. This shows tile brand loyalty mid brand image which the company has in the customer’s mind. Therefore, the company should open their exclusive show rooms and make more retailer/dealers at such places to provide the customer with a cost effective and operationally efficient location. The distribution of distance of DIGJAM retail outlet /showroom from customer’s place is shown above. But this data itself is not sufficient to make any decision. We also need to know as to how much distance a customer is willing in order to make a fabric/garment purchase. This Questionnaire assumes that a distance of 4km and above is ‘FAR’ for customer.
