Can I trust the information provided as current and authentic?
All the information provided on the site is first-hand and collected by women who live in the cities concerned, while out shopping. Updates are carried out as soon as a change comes to our notice on repeat visits.
We trust that the information on the price range prevalent in a shop or market as a whole will remain relevant for a period of time, in keeping with their profile. However not all seasonal rebates, discount offers and clearance sales are recorded.
Bargaining in some market places is a given and the extent of price reduction depends wholly on your persuasion skills.
In short, ShopKhoj will definitely give you a fair idea of what to expect in terms of quality and price from a particular outlet, but we may not be able to help you to plan your purchases to the last decimal point! Also, do fall back on your own judgment and use your discretion while shopping, because the decision to buy is also dictated by your purse.
Last but not the least, feel free to post any updates you may have about a shop, market, product, product category or price through the CONTACT US section. It will help to enrich our content and will help other visitors too.
