2 Methodology Entry Interviews/Pre-Shop 2,991 shoppers ages 18 years or older were screened for living in a household without members in the advertising, market research, grocery or mass merchandising industries. Interview included questions about planned category and brand purchases which were documented from shopping lists or shopper recall. General shopping information was captured as well. Shoppers were asked to return at the conclusion of their shopping trip for a follow-up exit interview with a team member. Exit Interviews/Post-Shop Post-shopping exit interviews probed on items purchased and gathered shopper perceptions of the store’s shopability and attitudes towards the shopping experience. Register receipts were scanned in order to capture and code all purchase information down to the brand level. A comparison of reported pre-store planned items and actual purchases is at the core of this study. Over 21,000 purchases were recorded. Demographic and profiling information were captured as well. Eye-Tracking A sub-set of 219 shoppers from the 2,955 who passed the screening criteria and agreed to wear eye-tracking headwear were directed to the eye-tracking team who set up each shopper prior to entering the store. Shoppers were asked to embark on their trip and shop the store as they normally would.

3 Display Audit Prior to conducting the shopper intercept interviews, ethnographers logged and audited every characteristic in each store The purpose was to evaluate channel trends and the overall influence of displays The audit also included a photo of each displays and was coded for the following: DISPLAY TYPES: -END-CAP -IN-LINE -POWERWING/SIDEKICK -FLOOR STAND -DEMO DISPLAYS LOCATION OF EACH DISPLAY: END OF AISLE Back-of-Store Center-of-Store Front-of-Store IN-AISLERACETRACK Back-of-Store Center-of-Store Front-of-Store Side PLACEMENT Secondary Primary CHARACTERISTICS Static Integrated Motion Freestanding Interactive

4 EYE TRACKING METHODOLOGY To compliment the interview data, POPAI also used eye-tracking to provide additional insight into the shopper journey Eye tracking was done in 2 store for each Mass Merchant chain (total of 6 stores) Objectives for eye tracking were: Understand shopper behavior, in particular their reaction and interactions to/with the displays in-store Measure shopper behavior as shopper naturally shop Observe and measure shopping behavior providing measurements at: Shopper Path Category/Shelf Display Engagement Integrate shopper behavior results with self-reported pre-and-post surveys

Ethnographer, please indicate the gender/age range of the persons accompanying the shopper. CS6.1. How easy or difficult was it for you to shop the > section? Sig. differences noted using 95% confidence A: Mass; E: Grocery I The fact that mean spend more time in the grocery store than mass retailers is likely not due to the greater difficult in the store, as both men and women give significantly higher ease of shopping scores to grocery store categories. Rather, the greater amount of time is probably due to the greater number of purchases made in grocery.

Since mass merchant shoppers spend less time conducting pre-store research and frequently walk in without a list it is not surprising the in-store rate is so high
