L6. the Influence of Social Exclusion on Consumers’ Perceptions of and Responses to Consumer-Dense Retail Environments

Social exclusion affects consumers’ perceptions of and responses to consumer-dense retail environments.

Socially excluded consumers’ heightened affiliation motivation increases crowding perceptions, enhancing intentions to spend time and money.
