This study is about store names as brand signals. It focuses on the effects of store name investments on store name credibility and perceived store quality. Using the theoretical framework of Erdem and Swait (1998), hypotheses are developed vis-à-vis the effects of store name investments on consumers’ perceived store quality. The proposed hypotheses are empirically tested on data collected from a sample of students. The study is part of a project that looks at how store name and brand name credibility affect consumers’ expected utility.
