Retailer Pricing Strategy and Consumer Choice Under Price Uncertainty

We examine consumers’ retailer choice under price uncertainty. Simulating everyday choice participants made many retailer choices where they chose a retailer and only then learned prices. Results of six studies demonstrated a choice advantage for a retailer that offered frequent small discounts over a retailer that offered infrequent large discounts.
