Delaying the adaptation of a new purchase allows the buyer to be content and acquire more joy out of their purchase for a longer period of time. Diminishing marginal utility also factors into the consumer’s purchasing decisions. If buyers were to break up their pleasures and purchases “into a series of briefer experiences [they can] …offset diminishing marginal utility” (Dunn 13). Doing this allows buyers to experience more pleasure from their purchases, and essentially “get the biggest bang for their buck” by spreading out the pleasure of the product, maximizing happiness time. This ties in with the adaptation of new purchases, and
They discussed that price discounts create transaction utility or smart shopper feelings, which may increase hedonic value. In addition, price discounts could create utilitarian value by facilitating an efficient end to the product-acquisition task. Consistent with this reasoning, they found that consumer bargain perceptions relate significantly to both hedonic value and utilitarian value. They suggested that if substantiated by future studies of price discounts and shopping value, these findings may indicate that the subjective emotional component of price promotions is at least as important as the more tangible component. However, Lee et al.
They explain that according to this theory, people acquire attitudes by observing their own behaviour and considering why they acted in a certain manner. They further contend that consumers who consistently purchase a brand because of a coupon or price-off deal may attribute their behaviour to the external promotional incentive rather than to a favourable attitude toward the brand. By contrast, when no external incentive is available, consumers are more likely to attribute their purchase behaviour to favourable underlying feelings about the brand. Sawyer and Dickson (2015) further contend that another potential problem with consumer-oriented promotions is that a sales promotion trap or spiral can result when several competitors use promotions extensively. Often a firm begins using sales promotions to differentiate its product or service from the competition.
Afterlooking through the videos of Underhill’s theories, Gladwell explained that it was a great advantage to see the experience that these customers have while shopping. I am definitely against the statement or claim that the surveillance of consumers is unethical.One reason why the surveillance of consumers is not manipulative and also unethical is because it is primarily used to observe the shoppers habits.

It gives businesses knowledge and information on the shopping habits and trends which can help them market their products more effectively which can increase sales resulting in more profits.

Before the anaphora she explains what “shopping” is, then uses anaphora to provide the different reasons one may shop. These reasons show that shopping is not about obtaining necessities, the modern day has transformed shopping to provide many other benefits. It demonstrates that some people are becoming reliant on shopping to attain benefits such as decision making, be apart of society, or to cheer themselves up. These other benefits display why people enjoy shopping and are becoming more
Because of the surveillance of consumers by retail anthropologist, they both impact each others. Indeed, the retail industry improve their business by learning consumers habit.

The theory states that a person has various cognitive elements of knowledge, environment, attitudes, opinions and past behavior (Kuan, Bock & Lee, 2007). When an individual holds conflicting thoughts of a belief or an attitude, cognitive dissonance will occur (Bose & Sarker, 2012) Research of Hasan (2012) shows that consumer’s dissonance toward the store is attained from consumption experiences, which directly influence consumer satisfaction level Once dissonance occurs, individuals will try to make a balance in their cognition to reduce dissonance. When Consumers have high cognitive dissonance, they will respond to difficulties to give a good evaluation towards the store, feel dissatisfaction and uncomfortable feeling with their decision (Lee & Li, 2013). Marketers may develop an informative and persuasive advertisement to present the store image to the customers so that it brings changes to their attitudes by influencing their cognition (Sharma, 2012). Champion Verdi marketers should provide additional information and suggestion of shoe care support for existing consumer.
