1.6.  SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

        Past research examining product quality and the effect price have on consumer buying decision [Churchill and Patter [1994] the consumer decides whether and what to buy depends partly on the significant of purchase.

        Consumer purchasing decision specifically refer to the activities consumer take when deciding what to buy and when making actual purchase.    Consumer research about price can show how to communicate price and most effective research indicates that, the ending of the price effect how consumers quality of the product.

        Other research work prior to this opined that more options can generate decision conflict, confusion and frustration, leading to choice deferral or even no choice at tall [e.g. Chennev 2003, D’har 1996, 1997; Greenleaf and Lehmamn 1995, Iyengar and Lepper 2000]

        The present study will correct that assertion and will also builds on preliminary study by examining a wider array of plausible factor’s [variables] that can influence consumers choice of a product such as advertizing, packaging, size assortment, product quality e.t.c.         The study will serve as a source of secondary data to research in field of product quality, product development and consumer behavior.

1.7.   SCOPE OF THE STUDY

         The study will be limited to the effect product quality has on the choices of student’s in Delta State University, Asaba Campus   and as such about fifty (50) or more questionnaire have been designed to achieve the objective of the study. The sampling unit of the study is limited to only the students in the institution and not staff and management of the institution. More so, a time frame has being set aside for this study starting from  March 11th to April 30th2015.

1.8    LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY

         Although the study found several encouraging results, it is important to recognize that the current findings also have several limitations.

         First, the sampling was relatively small since the study focused on the student consuming peak milk product in Asaba campus and not all the student in the institution [Delta State University]. Second. Time constrain on the part of the researcher as well as on the part of student due to academic activities.

        Third, large percentage of students consuming peak milk product in the school campus are not the actual buyers of the product, therefore we cannot say for certain what is responsible for student choice of the product.

      Hence WAMCO Nigeria Plc, producers of peak milk product will not base their marketing decision on this study alone even though this study will go a long way in assisting them.

         Nevertheless, future research should broaden the scope of their study and use other variables different from these use in this study.

         Additionally, future research might improve on this study by varying the sampling unit such that it will include staff of the institution, nursing mother at home and employer’s in other firm or sector in the economy
