The data were collected via the use of questionnaires since primary data was needed for the research. The questionnaires were administered to the respondents using the simple random sampling technique and the data was then analyzed using SPSS. A total of 400 questionnaires were administered, 375 were received, whereas 25 was not answered properly and therefore omitted. By virtue of this, 350 questionnaires were left to be analyzed. This research is purely qualitative and descriptive. The result of the findings indicated that customer satisfaction has a greater effect on customer loyalty and repeat purchases as compared to promotional strategies. Since promotional strategies do not bring about customer loyalty but instead affect customer repeat purchases.
