The Marketing Scales Handbook is indispensible in identifying how constructs have been measured and the support for a measure's validity and reliability. I have used it since the beginning as a resource in my doctoral seminar and as an aid to my own research. An electronic version will make it even more accessible to researchers in Marketing and affiliated fields.

Store Depersonalization

This four-item, five-point Likert-type scale is used to measure the degree to which a consumer believes that as stores become more self-service oriented, there is less personal interaction between salespeople and customers. The scale was referred to by Forman and Sriram (1991) as perceived depersonalization of the shopping experience (PDS).
