It is not a very easy task to get the response of 200 respondents for a research. The main problem that we have faced is English questionnaire. When we given them English questionnaire, the respondent were not understanding some of the question. And the response time was high. Another major problem was the unwillingness of the customer. Maximum times the customers are coming in supermarket for time shortage. So they were not willing to response due to lack of time. During the time of survey, the authority of Meena Bazar’s some outlet show negative attitude in fear of losing their customer. When we went to the head office of Meena Bazar & submitted our desired question to them; they showed their unwillingness to give answer showing excuse of security. In the website, information about Meena Bazar is not sufficient. 100% accurate supply chain of Meena Bazar we could not collect. The supply chain that we discuss is totally based on the speech of outlet manager and website. 1.6 Target audience
