Are the Bottom of the Pyramid (BOP) Brand Conscious Consumers?

BOP as Brand Conscious

If people at the Bottom of the Pyramid are brand conscious and at the same time price sensitive, then they have a good chance to play with different kinds of products widely available in the market today. Definitely, if a product is branded, we assume it's a good product in terms of quality as well. But customers can also find good products on the market at reasonable rates if they make the small effort to broaden their horizon. For example in the garment industry, we find good products at reasonable rates at many stores such as Pantaloons, Vibe, etc.
