When Do Consumers Prefer More Choice? Moderating Effects of Regulatory Focus
The purpose of our paper is to understand the nature of the relationship between assortment size and consumer’s reactions to the choice task and the chosen alternative. Consistent with past research, we argue that the relationship between assortment size and consumer’s reactions to the chosen alternative is non-linear. More importantly, we also propose that regulatory focus moderates the relationship between assortment size and consumer reactions to the choice task and the chosen alternative. We present our findings from two studies and discuss implications for marketers.
