Gone But Not Forgotten: Caribbean Consumer Reactions to Retro-Marketing

This study's goal was to determine which factors related to a product’s discontinuation affect purchase intentions after reintroduction. We found that across hedonic and utilitarian product categories, switching costs and the quality of the discontinuation implementation process are influential. Counterintuitively, a stronger negative emotional response to discontinuation increased purchase intentions.
