Product Search on Crowded Retail Shelves: Impact of Vertical Product Location on Search Performance

We explore target product search on crowded shelves (i.e., shelves with large assortments). Specifically, we investigate the effect of a product’s vertical shelf location on search performance. We provide evidence that, for product search, the middle shelf is a location of disadvantage when compared to top and bottom shelves.
