Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Marzena: Bargaining in Poland is still pretty common when it comes to the street stands or markets. If you buy more than one thing, you can usually get a better deal. In big shops and supermarkets they would usually lower their prices at the end of each season.
