Survey: Czechs are cost-conscious, efficient shoppers

Two-fifths of all Czechs consider price the most important factor when shopping for various goods, according to a fresh poll by the multinational Henkel company published on Tuesday. The survey results indicate Czechs are more cost-conscious than Hungarian and Polish consumers. For 41 percent of the Czech population, the cost of a product is the decisive factor in purchasing, as compared to only 25 percent of Poles. By contrast, Austrian and German consumers are even more cost-conscious than Czechs, with 43 and 46 of those polled responding that they pay the most attention to the price of a given product, respectively. The survey also finds that Czechs are efficient and quick shoppers who rarely purchase more than they initially planned to.
