    This paper focuses on the relevance of the coping concept in the understanding of the senior consumer behaviors. Particularly, it tries to define a link between the aging process, generating potential stressors, coping strategies used in order to cope with stress, and consumer behaviors. A short literature review based on coping theories and the developmental psychology enables us to present an integrated theoretical framework, in order to better understand the existing links between the stress-related coping mechanisms due to the aging process and the senior consumer behaviors. Moreover, this paper aims at suggesting a critical analysis of different measurement tools of the senior coping strategies. It stands for an essential preliminary for any future empirical test of the theoretical proposed framework.
