M7. the Mixed Effects of Nostalgia on Consumer Switching Behavior

However, this effect only occurs when consumers focus on the consumption outcome and it is reversed when consumers are led to focus on the process of consumption. These findings provide a nuanced understanding of nostalgia marketing.
