Online music retailers indeed provide the consumers with speedy delivery, cheaper price, and finger shopping experience. However, shopping experience obtain from the traditional physical music store is another story. Nowadays the traditional physical music stores must make efforts to win their customers back. The strategic experiential modules often can influence store image, store satisfaction, customer trust, and his/her commitment to this store. All these antecedents can build customer’s store loyalty. Thus, the aim of this research is to find how the physical music retailers can build their customer’s store loyalty by providing the consumers with strategic experiential store environment. In addition, the moderating effect of consumer involvement on the relationship between strategic experiential modules and store image is to be further examined.
The outcomes from structural equation modeling (SEM) analysis reveal that the strategic experiential modules of a music store are important for consumers to generate and/or to form a positive stores image. If an individual has a positive store image toward a music store then such image will further influence his/her store satisfaction, trust and commitment in order. Consequently, customer loyalty will come naturally. Moreover, consumer’s involvement in music store will exert a positive influence on the relationship between strategic experiential modules and store image. The results reveal that for the consumers who are in high involvement in music store, when the music store can formulate strategic experiential modules to provide them with more good experience then they will form a more positive store image than their counter-parts. This means that the music retailers should make efforts to provide the consumers with good in-store experience so as to enhance their store image. Based on the findings of this empirical study, some managerial implications and suggestions for the music retailers are provided in this study.
