Consumers’ Responses to Brand Transgressions: Role of Brand Type and Materialism
The current research identifies brand- and consumer-related conditions when self-brand connection consumers form with brands mitigates the negative impact of brand transgressions. We test and provide support for our predictions that materialism influences the extent to which material or experiential brands are forgiven (i.e., evaluated higher) following quality-related brand transgressions.
