There’S Only One Left, Do I Want It? : the Effects of Brand and Display Characteristics on Purchase Intentions For Scarce Products

This research explores the influence of brand and shelf display cues on consumer preferences for products in scarce supply. We develop a theoretical model of how scarcity operates in the retail environment, identifying when it increases purchase intentions, when it decreases purchase intentions, and the underlying mechanisms driving these outcomes.
