Doing Good in the Luxury Store: Prestigious Store Atmosphere Increases the Purchase of Ethical Products

We propose that this is the case because the positive store image helps consumers reconcile the ambiguity associated with ethical products. Consequently, consumers perceive the ethical product as superior, increasing their willingness to buy ethically.
