Psi Chi Distinguished Lecturer

Shopping in the 21st Century

"Have you walked into a store and experienced a bit of sensory overload? Colors fill your field of vision. Theatrical lighting makes those apples look so much better in store than they will look in your kitchen. There’s a pleasant aroma in the air that starts your saliva glands working. And there’s a faint melody coming from the speaker system of an old favorite tune. None of this is done on accident. Paco Underhill would tell you that every aspect of that store has been planned to make you want to buy." (Dycus ,2019)
