PRICING STRATEGY OF BATA:
Bata has managed to keep its pricing competitive and attractive for its customers. It has products for every foot and every social class to suit every member of the family. Brand’s strategy of pricing shoes at Rs 499 rather than Rs 500 has got a lot to do with consumer psychology.
