There is any shopping directory in the web which was following/building by using the Alexa ranking means which sites have good rating(less then 20000or 25000).

It would be impossible to maintain such a site, as Alexa ratings are

* unreliable
* easily manipulated
* of no interest to shoppers

Only webmasters give a monkey's cuss about Alexa; it allows them a feeling of success when real stats are too honest.

What conceivable value could there be to someone wishing to spend hard earned cash?

You can buy them from Alexa. It costs around 900 bucks for top 10000 ranks last time I checked.

And they will be out of date in minutes, as naive alexa-bearing webmasters repeatedly revisit their own sites in order to creep up a few notches.

When you look for a gimmick to impress visitors, you need one that has some value (or at least interest) to THEM - why would you shop at a store with a lower alexa rating? Wouldn't you rather it had free shipping or lower prices?

Just because many webmasters obsess about their own Alexa rating, don't assume for one moment that they believe anyone else's.

Pay zero attention to Alexa, its meaningless.

Don't give them 900 bucks, a waste of money.

I just did my twice yearly check of Alexa for a big site I manage.

It shows we have had zero traffic growth over the last 5 years ..... that is so wrong by hundreds of percent... and I have the bandwidth bills to prove it.

Maybe I will install the toolbar around the office to show a spike in traffic .... nah ... too much work for nothing.
