商店形象惠顾行为商店形象属性Store Image Consumer Patronage Behavior Store Image Attributes



Store image has been the subject of research over the last 50 years in western academics. However, it seems a little bit hysteretic in Chinese academics. The primary purpose of this review is to de-scribe the definition of store image, illustrate the dimensions of store image and provide an over-view of how store image influence consumer patronage behavior. Combining with Chinese cir-cumstance, we give some suggestions to future research.
