What's Wrong With Retail?

Best Buy is bombing out.Sears, owned by Kmart since 2005, is also sinking. And Radio Shack is a wreck. How did this all happen? First and foremost, these retailers all got caught, to varying degrees, in the muddle in the middle. Or maybe in the middle of the muddle.

If you don't stand for something in the consumer's mind and carve out a demonstrable and defensible niche, you're nothing.

But when they are rejected in real life,a new study in the Journal of Consumer Research reveals that a person’s desire for brand affiliation and willingness to purchase and display the item actually increases. “Our research highlights the fact that we are profoundly attuned to social threats and are driven to buy, wear, and use products from the very people who are disrespectful to us,” write authors Morgan K. Ward (Southern Methodist University) and Darren W. Dahl (University of British Columbia). Source Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source .
