How low prices attract consumers
In a local furniture industry
It all begins with the first drawings and the creative ideas of all the workers who
create and deliver the finished products. We are amazed at the process of how furniture
manufactures invent, design, and finally deliver the products and goods the local stores in our
neighborhoods. The whole process consists of and is defined by the 4Ps. The 4Ps are Product,
Price, Promotion, and Place.
In detail the design, construction, and marketing costs are equally as important as
promotion and control profit targets. All issues regarding material quality, warranties, and
discounts must be factored in to the cost. This allows the manufacture to calculate a pricing
strategy comparable to that of their competitors. Place suggests the channel of distribution.
This can be either direct or indirect. Direct distribution would be through following a
franchise model and indirect would be following a wholesale model. Promotion
communicates the type and quality of the products through advertising, public relations, trade
shows and events etc.
IKEA a well-known leader in the furniture industry who has led the way offering
unmatched designs and quality products. In a highly completive industry IKEA was one of
the first to offer an affordable customization scheme in which the products are built according
to individual customer’s preference. Many other furnishing companies have tried this same
approach to offer customized products but can not match the quality and price. IKEA stays
true to their mission to sell quality furniture products at affordable prices. (IKEA Systems

    Observation becomes an important technique for collecting data concerning what
    occurs in a real-life situation. This method also helps us to reach an understanding about the
    perceptions of those who are being studied. To be specific we employ non-participant
    observation methods. Analyzing information from journals, books, magazines and many
    more sources.
    The data retrieval was performed through an indirect approach, which means that the
    information obtained is secondary in nature. The data used within this study is generated
    from direct observation performed by a member of the organization which we are about to
    discuss. This approach is appropriate because a direct observation would provide a more
