In terms of the UK experience support for the USA study from a study of male and female shoppers in Leeds. This paper focuses on male shoppers to investigate how males' social identity and self-concept influences their shopping behaviour habits. It assesses implications for key stakeholders marketing activity including store location and layout. The study is supported by small scale qualitative primary research undertaken by a student project group in Leeds City Centre with male shoppers to gain insights into the complexities involved.
