Is Version Of
The first national meeting of textile and clothing professors took place in Madison, Wisconsin in June 1959. With a mission to advance excellence in education, scholarship and innovation, and their global applications, the International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) is a professional and educational association of scholars, educators, and students in the textile, apparel, and merchandising disciplines in higher education.

Smart shoppers in marketing literature are often connoted with deal-prone consumers (Schindler, 1998). They tend to invest considerable time and effort to seek for promotion-related information and participate in price promotions for economic value (Mano and Elliot, 1997). However, it is unclear how consumers perceive “smart shoppers” as their lived experiences in everyday life. Almost no research has examined what smart shopper means from the consumers’ perspective. The purpose of this study is to understand what a smart shopper feeling is like.
