Sellers often on the move offer the goods of interest cheaper and are very annoying. If the “language barrier” does not allow bargaining, then you can use a calculator, which alternately dial numbers, or a piece of paper and a pen.
In large department stores, purchase is often accompanied by a large number of papers and checks, so you should ask the rules in advance.
