The study the survey strategy where structured questionnaires were administered to a sample of 95 respondents determined through simple random sampling. In order to obtain a more diverse population, the study was conducted within the vicinity of Dar es salaam region where most supermarkets are located. The data were collected and analyzed using SPSS where descriptive statistics and multiple regression analysis was conducted in order to determine the relationship between the predictor variable and dependent variable. The findings established that a significant relationship exists between package labelling, design & material and consumer goods buying decision. However, it is established that product package does not influence repeat purchases decision as other factors such as service quality are considered by customers.
