The Temporal Dimension of Shopping Behavior

Author: Jacob Hornik

Shopping is a major household activity that consumes time and other resources. This paper represents an attempt to construct a unified model of shopping activity by drawing on the households’ production approach. A formal treatment is presented that takes into account the explicit relationships between households’ temporal and monetary resources, stage of family life cycle, their subjective shopping preferences, and shopping behavior. Emerged propositions make the study of time use for shopping increasingly amenable.
