Quality Perceptions of Private Label Brands Conceptual Framework and Agenda for Research
The paper examines how retailers can influence the quality perceptions for private label brands by providing additional information cues to the customers. The nature of additional information cues may have differential impact on quality perceptions of private label brands vis-Ã -vis national brands. The paper proposes extrinsic high scope cues â€“ in form of manufacturerâ€™s name and public quality label â€“ to improve the quality perceptions of private label brands. Furthermore, the familiarity of the product may influence the quality perceptions, consequently influencing the purchase decision. The paper also proposes differential impact of information cues across different product categories on quality perceptions of private label brands. [W.P. No.2008-02-04]
