When Is Hilo Low? Price Image Formation Based on Frequency Versus Depth Pricing Strategies

This research investigates consumer responses to everyday low price (EDLP) and high-low (HILO) pricing strategies. In contrast to previous findings and managerial wisdom, we find a consistent advantage for HILO pricing when price information was provided for multiple options in a category - a context more similar to an actual shopping environment.
