Abstract

Consumer choice of retail outlet is an under-rated variable in explaining purchase behaviour in the organic food market. This paper identifies the factors affecting consumer choice of retail outlet and finds that they play a determining role in whether or not consumers buy organic food. A grounded theory approach was used to develop a conceptual framework which identified those factors which influence choice of retail outlet. In addition to supporting those factors identified in the literature, namely: habit; budget; product range offered in retail outlet and convenience, two new factors were identified. These being, who the consumer was buying for and whether they were shopping alone or with others.
