Understanding Changing Consumer Decisions at the Point of Sale

In the dynamic landscape of consumer markets, the point of sale (POS) remains a critical juncture where purchase decisions are made. These decisions determine the commercial success of products and services and also reflect deeper societal trends and individual values. This research program is dedicated to understanding consumer decisions at the POS, particularly as they evolve in light of growing sustainability awareness and the integration of digital and virtual environments into everyday commerce. Gaining insight into these important market trends is critical to developing marketing activities, consumer information and regulations that reflect today's consumer ethics and marketplace realities.
