Role of Store Image in Consumer Impulse Buying Behavior

We posit that store image drives impulse buying through positive affect, negative affect and urge to buy impulsively. We hypothesize that shopping enjoyment would drive impulse buying through positive affect, while impulse buying tendency would drive impulse buying through urge and self-regulation would drive impulse buying through negative affect. A mall survey conducted to test our structural model established strong support for our model, finding that store image drives impulse buying. Retailers may therefore focus on enhancing store image. We integrate the store image literature with impulse buying and methodigically we incorporated the Schmid-Leiman factor structure in our model.
