Abstract

National culture is an important variable in explaining consumer behavior. Cultural meanings embedded in products affect the way consumers process information, form attitudes and make decisions about products. Previous research on the role cultural meanings in products has often adopted a qualitative anthropological approach. In this research, we develop a multidimensional measure of cultural embeddedness of products, the CEP-scale. The scale is tested on two Russian non-student samples and shown to have three dimensions and sound psychometric properties.
