Angry Avengers Or Disappointed Deferrers: Consumers’ Emotional Reactions to Stockouts
Stockouts reduce consumers’ satisfaction with purchase decisions, prompting behaviors like store-switching, deferral, and negative word-of-mouth. We demonstrate that stockouts provoke discrete emotional reactions of anger and disappointment, and that each emotion induces distinct retaliatory behaviors. Importantly, these emotional responses mediate the effect of stockouts on consumer satisfaction and punitive actions.
