I've always felt that gender can somehow influence how a sales employees deals with you in certain specialty stores. When buying auto parts, for instance, my brother always manages to get the lower price or the bigger discounts. Hence, I usually ask for his help when it comes to canvassing for stuff like auto parts and electronics or computer parts. It's like the sellers assume outright that they can't fool around with him because he's routinely familiar with those stuff. On the other hand, my brother loses out when it comes to bargaining for household items, clothes, fruits, vegetables, and foods in general. Do you have similar experiences?
