10-P: Solving the Paradox of a Large Assortment: the Moderating Role of Choice Mode

Prior research on the effect of assortment size on purchase behavior revealed that consumers prefer a large (vs. small) assortment, but are less satisfied with the selected product from a large (vs. small) assortment. We demonstrate that the moderating effect of choice mode (instrumental vs. experiential) can explain this paradox.
