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 (v. included) consumers exhibit increased crowd-size estimates, perceive higher neutral and positive (but equal negative) crowding, and prefer crowded retailers. Socially excluded consumers’ heightened affiliation motivation increases crowding perceptions, enhancing intentions to spend time and money.
