Store Personality As a Source of Customer Value

The findings of a consumer survey (n = 206) confirm the impact of store personality on satisfaction and loyalty, mediated by customer value. The hypothesized moderating role of self-congruence is not supported, implying that store personality is valued by customers, regardless of whether the store’s personality matches the customer’s self-concept.
