Introducing The Checkout India
Monday, February 6th, 2012
We are pleased to present The Checkout International: Indian Shoppers, in support of Integer India, the newest addition to the Integer network. This study, conducted by The Integer Group India and Ipsos Marketing, India, is a shopper study designed to understand motivations and attitudes, rituals, and other factors that influence this fascinating retail economy.
- Indian shoppers place quality of goods highest of all values, more important than price (a close second), shopping experience, and saving time.
- Even as India advances quickly as a technology market, Western innovations like credit-card purchasing, retailer loyalty programs, and online shopping tend to lag behind more developed markets.
- Shoppers in India’s largest cities (Urban A) tend to set aside a shopping budget; those living in second-tier cities (Urban B) are more likely to use a written shopping list.
- The predominant shopping style in Rural India, where refrigeration and personal transportation are less common, is to make regular trips to small, local vendors.
