People’s shopping habits depend more on the age group they belong to than any other factors. To what extent do you agree or disagree? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

It is thought that people of different ages have different shopping habits and these habits are dependent on which
age
group they fit into rather than any other demographic. For me, it would really depend on the definition of ‘shopping habit’ is, as well as how the
age
groups are defined. I understand “shopping habits” to be any time you go out and spend money for whatever reason, not necessarily purely for clothes or food.
This
would include going to restaurants and perhaps the cinema or KTV as well as sports activities. I would probably define the
age
groups in blocks of 10 years. If
this
were the case, I can see some arguments that might support
this
statement due to the fact that people of different ages will buy different things and at different times, but I don’t believe it is solely due to their
age
.

for clothes. Another example of why it is not the unique decider, is recreation activities that different people do. I am thinking of my friends that play sport with me, sometimes twice a week. Our squash club is made up of entirely different people, with
age
ranges from 16 to 70; there are both women and men that play from all parts of the world including England, America, South Africa and China. So again,
this
“habit” has nothing at all to do with
