About Buying Things

What the Law Says about Buying Things

When you buy something, you and the seller make a contract. Even if all you do is talk! The seller—not the manufacturer—must sort out your complaint.
The law has three rules:
i) Goods must be of marketable quality. This means that they must be reasonably fit for their normal purpose. Bear in mind the price and how the item was described. A new item must not be broken or damaged. It must work properly. But if it is cheap, second-hand9 or a "second[1]" you cannot expect top quality.
ii) Goods must be as described—on the package, a display sign or by the seller. Shirtsleeves must not be long if marked "short" on the box. Plastic shoes should not be called leather.
iii) Goods must be fit for any particular purpose made known to the seller.[2] If the shop says a glue will mend china, then it should.
All goods—including those bought in sales—are covered[3] (food too) if bought from a trader—for example, from shops, in street markets, through mail order catalogues or from door-to-door sellers.

Please Note

If you are entitled to reject something, take it back yourself if you can. It is quicker and you can discuss it face to face. Strictly speaking, the seller should accept it. You may be able to claim extra compensation if you suffer loss from a faulty buy, for example, when a faulty iron[4] ruins clothes.

Making Your Complaint

To make a complaint:
stop using the item and tell the shop at once;
take it back (if you can);
take a receipt or proof of purchase (if you can);
ask for the manager or owner;
keep calm.
If it is a tricky problem it may be better to write. To be on the safe side it is better to use recorded delivery. Keep copies of all letters. Do not send receipts or other proofs of purchase—give reference numbers or send photocopies10.
If you phone:
first make a note of what you want to say;
have receipts and useful facts handy;
get the name of the person you speak to;
jot down the date and time and what is said;
keep calm!
If you see the notice NO REFUNDS11 you can ignore it. Such notices are illegal, even for sales goods. A trader cannot wriggle out of his responsibility if he sells you faulty goods. (404 words)

The Older Subculture

Although business people have a very high opinion of the opportunities in the youth market, elderly people have been largely neglected by marketers and frequently by society itself. Many people feel that American marketers have gone too far in attempting to please the youth market and particularly those aged8 18 to 34. A recent survey found that over 40 percent of the nation's leading advertisers said the 50-plus [1] market has little impact on their current marketing23 strategies. An advertising24 executive observed that markets have long concentrated only on consumers below the age of 49. He noted25 that "it is as if the world ceases to exist once you are beyond 49[2]". One of the problems with retailing in America is that merchants have lost touch with older customers—their customer has changed, but they have not.
Why the neglect[3]? Many marketers consider the youth market to be attractive and exciting, whereas older consumers are thought to be dull and uninteresting. Although this situation may be understandable psychologically, it may make poor economic sense[4], because middle-aged26 consumers hold considerably more promise for a wide range of consumer goods and services than do the young[5].
Nevertheless, many Americans—even many marketers—hold negative stereotypes about the 50-plus market that are not based on fact. The following eight myths about this group can limit a company's success in attracting older customers:
i. Older consumers are all the same. (Actually this market is comprised of numerous groups.)
ii. They think of themselves as old. ("Old age" is typically 15 years older than they are, and doesn't begin until well past 70.)
iii. They aren't an important percentage of consumers. (Those 50 and over often have a lot of spending money and they account for almost one-third of spending on refrigerators, floor coverings, new cars, jewelry27, and groceries.)
iv. They won't try something new. (A survey for one company found that in one year, 45 percent had tried a new brand of cereal, and 30 percent had tried a new canned soup and soft drink brand.)
v. They have impaired mental faculties. (Only about 5 percent have serious mental impairment. Moreover, intelligence tests reveal little change from age 17 to 80.)
vi. They are in poor health. (Most are not disabled and will remain healthy until their last years.)
vii. They keep to themselves.[6] (Many are socially active, are involved as volunteers, and are taking on new responsibilities.)
viii. They aren't physically28 active. (A recent Gallup poll revealed almost half of those 65 and over regularly engage in exercise.) (428 words)

1. Directions: Read the following passage carefully and chooose the right word or phrase for each blank.

Bargains

Let us take the orthodox definition of the word bargain. It is something offered at a low and __________ (advantageous/disadvantageous) price. It is an opportunity to buy something at a lower price than it is really worth. A more recent definition is: a bargain is a dirty trick to extort money from the pockets of silly and innocent people.
I have never attended a large company's board [1] meeting in my life, but I feel certain that the discussion often takes the following lines[2]. The _______ (money/cost) of producing a new toothpaste, for example, would make 80p[3] the decent price for it, so we will market it at £1.20. It is not a bad toothpaste (not especially good either, but not bad), and as people like to try new things it will sell well to _________ (start/start with); but the attraction of novelty soon fades, so sales will fall. When that starts to happen we will reduce the price to £1.15. And we will turn it into a bargain by printing 5p OFF all over it, whereupon people will ________ (run/rush) to buy it even though it still costs about forty-three percent more than its fair price.
Sometimes it is not 5p OFF but 1p OFF. What breathtaking impertinence to advertise 1p OFF your soap or washing powder or dog food or whatever. Even the poorest old-age pensioner ought to regard this ________ (as/(empty)) an insult, but he doesn't. A bargain must not be missed. To be offered a "gift" of one penny is like being invited to dinner and offered one single pea (tastily cooked), and nothing else. Even if it represented a real reduction it would be an insult. _________ (Still/Moreover), people say, one has to have washing powder (or whatever) and one might as well buy it a penny cheaper. When I was a boy in Hungary a man was accused of murdering someone for the sake of one pengo, the equivalent of a shilling, and pleaded guilty[4]. The judge was outraged: "To kill a man for a shilling!... What can you say in your ________ (offense/defense)?" The murderer replied:"A shilling here... a shilling there..." And that's what today's shopper says, too:"A penny here... a penny there..."
The real danger starts when ___________ (fully/utterly) unnecessary things become "bargains". There is a huge number of people who just cannot resist bargains and sales. Provided they think they are getting a bargain they will buy clothes they will never wear, furniture they have _________ (no/(empty)) space for. Old ladies will buy roller-skates and _______ (smokers/nonsmokers) will buy pipe-cleaners[5]. And I once heard of a man who bought an electric circular saw as a bargain and cut off two of his fingers the next day. But he had no regrets: the saw had been really cheap.
Quite a few people actually believe that they __________ (make/waste) money on such bargains. A lady I know, ___________ (likewise/otherwise) a charming and seemingly sane woman,[6] sometimes tells me stories such as this:"I've had a lucky day today. I bought a dress for £120, reduced from £400; I bought a suitcase for £40, reduced from £120 and I bought a beautiful Persian carpet for £600, reduced from £900." Perhaps she may add vaguely that she has been a trifle extravagant, but it will never________ (happen/occur) to her that she has actually wasted £760. She feels as though she has made £660. She also feels, I am sure, that if she had more time for shopping, she could make a living _______ (with/out of) it.
Some people buy in bulk because it is cheaper. At certain moments New Zealand lamb chops[7] may be 3p cheaper if you buy half a ton of them, so people rush to buy a freezer __________ (to/just to) find out later that it is too small to hold half a ton of New Zealand lamb. I once knew a couple who could not resist ____________ (to buy/buying) sugar in bulk. They thought it a tremendous bargain, not to be _______( missed/lost), so they bought enough sugar for their lifetime and the lifetime of their children and grandchildren. When the sugar arrived they didn't know where to store it—____________ (when/until) they realized that their loo was a very spacious one. So that was where they piled up their sugar. Not only ________ (their guests felt/did their guests feel) rather strange whenever they were offered sugar to put into their coffee, but the loo became extremely sticky.
To offer bargains is a commercial trick to make the poor poorer. When greedy fools fall for this trick, it serves them right [8]. All the same, if bargains were prohibited by law our _________ (level/standard) of living would immediately rise by 7.39 per cent. (770 words)
