Discovering The UNIQLO Philosophy of Lifewear

The Uniqlo philosophy is Lifewear. Their mission is to create clothes to make life better for all kinds of people. And if like me, you have bought and worn their clothes, you would believe them. Their clothes are trendy yet, casual and practical.  Best of all, they are affordable for middle income earners like me.

Return Of The DAISO!

Anyone who likes to shop (me) for bargains and other interesting but affordable stuff should be familiar with DAISO Japan store. When they opened in Robinson's Place Bacolod in December 2012, little did I know that it was a store that catered to my heart.  Obviously, I am a regular shopper and so when I saw that it closed, you can imagine my anxiety attack.  I was told however that they were undergoing some renovation and will reopen soon with a bigger and better store. What a relief!

The Thoughtful Shopper

What kind of a shopper are you?

According to Mark Hunter in Business Know-How there are 5 types of customers:

  • Loyal Customers: They represent no more than 20% of the customer base but make up more than 50% of the  sales.
  • Discount Customers: They shop the store frequently but make their decisions based on the size of the markdowns.
  • Impulse Customers: They do not have buying jewelry at the top of their “To Do” list but come into the store on a whim. They will purchase what seems good at the time.
  • Need-Based Customers: They have a specific intention to buy a particular type of jewelry.
  • Wandering Customers: They have no specific need or desire in mind when they come into the store. Rather, they want a sense of experience and/or community.
If I were to look at myself, I would say that I am "all of the above". I shop for the things I am used to, making me a loyal customer, but I also love discounts (thus I am attracted to anything on sale) and I can be impulsive on these events. I also shop because of need, although I rarely if ever wander.  However, I would like to add a third type, and that is the "thoughtful" customer. This is someone who likes to shop, is a consumer at heart, but is careful about money and plans her shopping for the good of everyone. I guess growing older and becoming more responsible for others has made me one. I have not always been the thoughtful shopper that I advocate for.  I had to experience a hard lesson in life in order for me to change my shopping diva habit to a more practical, prudent and wise one.  I still get impulsive (on rare occasions now) but, thanks to a better understanding of the difference between needs and wants, as well as practicing good financial management, I am well on my way to becoming a really thoughtful shopper.
