Kavita Kanabar(2012) in her paper entitled Change in consumer behavior in Surat with
introduction of Mall. Modern organized retail has forayed into Surat, as is evident in
supermarkets and multi-storied malls that offer shopping, entertainment and provision for
eating under one roof. The study finds that primarily in the malls for shopping, consumers
prefer eating at food-courts, window shopping and entertainment in the form of movies at
multiplexes or video game parlors. They also attend events, promotions, competitions and
product launches that are organized in the malls and spend their leisure time with family
and friends. Over the period, the mall culture has gained acceptance and consumers are
repeating their visits for successive purchases marked by the increase of regular users at
malls.Anil N. Barbole and Varsha Borade (2012) studied the impact of a customer buying
attitude on various grocery products in supermarkets. The growing competition among the
retailers and the increased customer dissatisfaction among customer are reasons for the
grocery retailers strive to know their customers. The different shopping patterns are owing
to varied customer tastes and environment. Sandhe Ashutosh A. and Pandya Amit R (2012)
studied purchasing intention of the people of Vadodara city towards two products categories
i.e. high involvement and low involvement. Further, a study of the effect of this involvement
on payment mechanism and shopping situation is also analyzed and found out. Poonam
Kamboj (2012) published paper titled Retail Industry: Its Growth, Opportunities and

Challenges in IJRFM Volume 2, Issue 2 (February 2012) has found out that it is also the
second largest industry in US in terms of numbers of employees and establishments. There
is no denying the fact that most of the developed economies are very much relying on their
retail sector as a locomotive of growth. The India Retail Industry is the largest among all the
industries, accounting for over 10 per cent of the countries GDP and around 8 per cent of the
employment24Zanual Bashar Bhutoo, Rambalak yadav and vikram singh(2012) The
