Marketing Research

Millennials v Boomers:Shopping Attitudes
Retailers focus much of their efforts on Millennials, but could be ignoring the generation with the most “clout,” according to a report from COLLOQUY that uncovers some differences in the shopping habits of these generations. The research suggests that Millennials (22-35) are more likely to approach shopping as fun and relaxing, whereas Boomers (52-65) are more interested in convenience. According to the report, Boomers have higher expectations of the shopping experience than Millennials, being less likely to return to a store if they felt under-appreciated by sales associates, if making a return was too much hassle, or if the store was too messy or disorganized.

Rather than see shopping as a great way to relax (45% of Millennials strongly agreed with this statement, compared to 27% of Boomers), the older generation prioritizes convenience, evidenced by the importance they place on easy-to-access locations and stores that are easy to navigate.

Reflecting their more relaxed approach to shopping, Millennials seem more likely to make impulse purchases. In fact, more than twice as many Millennials (33%) as Boomers (13%) strongly agreed that they tend to shop and buy without thinking, making impulse purchases. Millennials were also less likely than Boomers to say that they know the price they pay for most of the foods and packaged goods they buy (57% vs. 64%), and more likely to say that if they like something, they’ll buy it regardless of price (38% vs. 29%). At the same time, Boomers could be the more brand-loyal generation: while 46% of Millennials said they value price over brand name, only 36% of Boomers shared that sentiment.

The report finds the younger generation to be be more digitally-oriented, being more likely to prefer shopping online to avoid stores and to use mobile devices when shopping. One-third also take to social media to voice feelings after a bad experience with a store, compared to slightly fewer than 1 in 5 Boomers.

Finally, the results support a growing body of evidence suggesting that word-of-mouth is more important to Millennials than to Baby Boomers. Indeed, Millennials (32%) responding to the study were almost 3 times as likely as Boomers (12%) to strongly agree that they rely on friends and family for advice on what to purchase.

About the Data: The results are based on a survey of almost 4,500 North American shoppers (2,251 in the US and 2,242 in Canada) fielded from February 4-20.

How Mobile Millennials Buy & Why
In an article by Chuck Martin in Mobile Insider, Like most consumers, almost all Millennials shop in person, but they also turn to their smartphones for all kinds of commerce. Millennials in the U.S. who shop in person do it because of a sense of immediacy and the ability to touch the product, and to see if it fits, based on a new global study.

The majority (66%) of Millennials overall shop in a store rather than online in order to get the product right away and 66% because they are able to see, touch and try the merchandise. The study is based on a survey of 2,800 Millennials across seven markets (U.S., U.K., Germany, Mexico, Brazil, Hong Kong and Malaysia) conducted by LexisNexis Risk Solutions.

More (77%) of Millennials in the U.S. have that sense of immediacy and 74% want to be able to see and try the merchandise.

However, American Millennials also are turning to their smartphones for a range of transactions, most notably banking. Here is where U.S. Millennials conduct transactions via mobile:

74% — Banking, financial
53% — Online, mobile app purchases
51% — Music, video downloads
44% — Retail purchases
This is consistent with numerous studies that find most shoppers make their final purchase in a physical store, although mobile devices are used throughout the entire Mobile Shopping Life Cycle.

For U.S. consumers, activities that involve higher risk, such as opening a bank account, are done in person. But mobile is involved in conducting activities in a number of them. Here’s where Millennials use mobile:

38% — Check order status
26% — Get or reset a password
23% — Renew a subscription
15% — Open an account with a retailer
7% — Open a credit card account
5% — Open an account with a bank
In yet another area that mobile payments may be being held back, many Millennials are not feeling confident that they can trust those who provide them.

For example, a large majority (87%) of American Millennials use cash, 78% use a debit card, 77% use a credit card, and 55% use a gift card, but only 12% use a mobile wallet. The largest country use of mobile wallets is Mexico, with 19% of Millennials.

Millennials also have a sense of distrust with retailers and communications companies, along with payment providers. Here’s where U.S. Millennials have no trust at all:

26% — Mobile wallets
26% — Retailers
22% — Telecom service providers
13% — Financial institutions
So it still looks like some effort and time will have to be involved for Millennials to fully embrace mobile commerce across the board.

These are not the only concerns among Millennials. Here’s a breakdown of some of the statements around identity or debit or credit information being compromised:

69% — I worry about having my identity stolen in a data breach
69% — When companies ask for my personal information, I think twice before providing it
67% — I worry about having my credit card information stolen
65% — I worry about having my identity stolen through online, app and mobile activities
54% — I am required to remember too many passwords
54% — I would be willing to provide a summary of my shopping habits in exchange for free products or services
36% — I would be willing to provide access to my geographic location in exchange for targeted goods or services

These issues reflect the same as those facing the masses.
