2.  Amdavadis are fond of food and new cloths so all that stores which are having food facility that are more in benefit. They should advertise in a specific way to attract the customers of Surrounding areas of Ahmedabad as to their style of living. We also learned that it is very difficult to work in groups and be collective about the total work on a single goal 3. 4. 2.  They should try to serve with many brands at a time. We also learnt how to collect data from the internet and also from the stores 4. We conclude that the majority of the consumers are satisfied with the retail ready made garment. We made an attempt to apply the learnings of BBA in the project Other general suggestions and conclusions 1. TYBBA/GP/2005-06/BPCBBA Page 155 of 166 . Consumers are getting whatever they want at reasonable prices and in their budget and it is the only reason of positive growth of retail ready made garment sector in Ahmedabad. Consumer feels status while visiting the showroom so they should advertise themselves on status criteria rather than other beneficial criteria.  As ladies love discount they should promote different schemes which would give maximum benefit to the customers. It was a great experience to be a student-researcher and give research findings but it is very difficult to get response form respondent.  They should have sufficient parking place in their store. 3. It will be too easy to do this work again.1. You have to create faith in the person to answer your question but once you know the trick nothing like it.  They should take care of over all hospitality.
