Age, sex, education level, monthly household income, monthly household expenditure, monthly frequency of visit, availability of desired products and the price are the signifcant predictors of superstore customers’ satisfaction in Bangladesh. Therefore, the customary business model like Brick and Mortar is now replacing with internet-based or clicks or order-based business model. The shoppers can buy their desired products straight from the superstores with a single click.
