If you really do want to buy a carpet then go ahead. You should be prepared to spend a good half day in one shop! You will be shown hundreds of the darned things plus you will be served refreshments too.
But if you have no intention of making a purchase then for goodness sake don't get 'sucked' in, the shopkeepers can literally try to drag you into their shops. This can be a little tiresome after a while. Sometimes NO won't be taken for an answer but try and remain calm and polite, you never know, you might have to return!
