Abstract

In this paper, we aim to explore the concept of ‘Revenge Buying’ and its implications on sectors such as retail, entertainment, hospitality and tourism. In addition, we investigate the early consumption and buying trends in the immediate post lockdown phase in China. Much of the discussions around revenge buying appear in non-academic sources, with very little attention to this phenomenon from a consumer research perspective. As such, in this research we aim to plant the seeds of early discussions around revenge buying, in an attempt for further theorisation and investigation. To date, our understanding of the term is limited despite its popularity and trendiness on social networking sites.
