Shopping Behavior: Consumers Flock Together, But Don’t Necessarily Buy

(Original Article)

ScienceDaily (Apr. 20, 2009) — Consumers are attracted to crowds in stores, but they are not likely to buy something from a crowded location, according to a new study in the Journal of Consumer Research.

Authors Sam K. Hui (New York University), Eric T. Bradlow, and Peter S. Fader (both University of Pennsylvania) analyzed tracking data from an electronic system called Pathtracker®, a device attached to the bottom of a shopping cart that emits a signal every five seconds to track shoppers’ paths. They matched the shopping cart paths with purchase records obtained from scanners to create complete records of consumers’ shopping trips. The data came from a large supermarket in the eastern United States.

The data showed that although consumers are attracted to crowded store zones, they are less likely to make a purchase once they arrive.The authors also discovered that the more time people spend in a store, the more purposeful they become. “As consumers spend more time in the store, they begin to feel time pressure when making the visit. Thus they adapt by changing their shopping strategies: They are less likely to spend time on exploration, and instead focus on visiting and shopping at store zones that carry categories they plan to buy,” write the authors.

    First of all, cool idea to introduce your article with a “to-buy” list. Very appealing as it has kind of a “minimalistic art/typography” atmosphere to it. Secondly, to me a very interesting post because you “throw” a study on us, making us confused and thinking about the subject rather than reading an opinion of you.
    What I can say is that for me this study is totally true. I can tell that I often go into shops because I see many people going in there, but I never really find something, which is a pity. And to me it seems that I shop very superficial nowadays, it’s not like some years ago where I went into one or two shops and stayed there for hours and found my pieces, but I rather go into many shops in a short time and don’t find anything.
    What I miss are some experiences from consumers, e.g. you could have gone on the streets or searched a little more if the people really do as it is told in the study. To give it a little bit more “reality background”. But other than that, well done!
