  • Bi-directional and Stratified Demeanour in Value Forming Service Encounter Interactions
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services. - 0969-6989. ; 36, s. 93-102
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The purpose of this paper is to unearth the bi-directional and stratified nature of service encounter interactions. Drawing on a detailed empirical study of service demeanour in mobility services, seen from a customer perspective, we outline a classification of 6 overarching demeanour practices, 20 sub-activities, and interactional sequences, explaining how value co-formation is realized. We suggest that value derives from bi-directional activities mutually combined in congruent ways, avoiding counterproductive interactions.

  • The expected retail customer Value co-creator, co-producer or disturbance?
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services. - 0969-6989. ; 30, s. 204-211
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The purpose of this paper is to explore expectations among front-line employees regarding their customers and how these expectations can be understood in relation to strategies of customer participation and value co-creation. Two categories of expectations are identified; operative and interactive. In particular, the operative expectations reveal a service practice that is heavily structured by large-scale systems and ideals of rational efficiency. It is argued that co-creation needs to be discussed on both the strategic level, i.e. in terms of what the “customer”/market wants, and on the operative level, where the customer’s direct contribution to the value-creating process has its focus.

  • Creating a compelling brand meaning by orchestrating stories : The case of Scandinavia’s largest department store
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services. - 0969-6989. ; 32, s. 210-217
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The aim of this paper is to explore how a company can create a compelling brand meaning by orchestrating what is said in different points of contact with the brand. A case study of Scandinavia's largest store suggests that, in order to create a compelling brand meaning, a retailer need to manage oral and written stories, as well as stories told by facilities, goods, and services. It is argued that all stories need to be coherent in the sense that they all fit the brand meaning, and that it sometimes may require expansion of the retailer's control boundary. The case study also suggests that reality shows can be important points of contact, very much due to their ability to tell credible stories that can humanize the brand, and that individual employees can constitute important assets in these stories.

  • Consumer perception and behavior in the retail foodscape – A study of chilled groceries
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services. - 0969-6989. ; 40, s. 1-7
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In the retail grocery business, new competitors such as pure e-commerce players are growing fast, and, in order to compete, ‘brick and mortar’ stores such as supermarkets need to become more professional at providing excellent customer service, and to use the physical servicescape as the main competitive advantages. However, supermarkets also face a challenge to offer consumers high quality products while at the same time providing a pleasant and functional servicescape. Products like groceries often need to be stored in cabinets due to strict regulations and in order to maintain correct temperatures. Some of these cabinets have doors which make them more energy-efficient (Evans et al., 2007 ;  Faramarzi et al., 2002), reduces costs, and contributes to grocery quality, but it can also affect the perceived servicescape, and risk a negative impact on sales (Waide, 2014; Kauffeld, 2015). For example, moisture from the atmosphere that condenses on the inside of the door glass (Fricke and Bansal, 2015) may make the cabinets less transparent, and doors can obstruct consumers from passing by. Thus, having chilled groceries in cabinets with doors can be both beneficial and problematic. However, no studies have been conducted on how open (no doors) or closed (with doors) cabinets for chilled groceries impact consumer perception and behavior. Hence, the purpose of the study is to contribute to an understanding of how consumers behave and what they perceive when shopping chilled groceries from cabinets with doors and without doors in the supermarket.Based on a qualitative research approach, combining in-store observations and focus group interviews, and focusing on Bitner's (1992) three environmental variables in the servicescape, i.e. (1) ambient condition, (2) space and functions, and (3) signs, symbols and artifacts, the study investigates the question: do open or closed cabinets for chilled groceries in the supermarket impact consumer perception and behavior, and if so, how?Our results indicate that consumers’ behavior and perceptions of the foodscape differ when there are doors or no doors on the cabinets. The paper thereby contributes to servicescape research by focusing on a particular part of supermarkets – the foodscape for chilled groceries–and by enhancing the understanding of environmental variables in the servicescape. The results further show how doors lead to different forms of approach or avoidance behavior in terms of accessibility and that consumers’ vision, olfaction and tactility all influence consumers’ perceptions of freshness and cleanliness in relation to doors or no doors. Our results also have practical implications for retailers who are designing new stores or considering changes in existing store layouts.
