A study examines the implications of electronic shopping for consumers, retailers, and manufacturers. It assumes that near-term technological developments will offer consumers unparalleled opportunities to locate and compare product offerings. It examines these advantages as a function of typical consumer goals and the types of products and services being sought and offers conclusions regarding consumer incentives and disincentives to purchase through interactive home shopping vis-a-vis traditional retail formats. Implications for industry structure as they pertain to competition among retailers, competition among manufacturers, and retailer-manufacturer relationships are discussed.
