This article asked from the consumer perspective how retailer attributes impact on store image, comparing five grocery retail formats in Romania. In retailing research, retail formatspecific studies are scarce, and the present and very first empirical study in Romania is therefore interesting because most grocery companies are based in Western Europe and adapt or standardize their concepts to foreign markets on a different level. Empirical data, analysed in a multi-group structural equation approach (N=2,825), that allow comparison of the retail formats based on one empirical model, demonstrate different and sometimes surprising impacts of perceived retailer attributes on store image. The perception differences between hypermarkets, supermarkets, discounters, neighbourhood stores, and cash & carry stores (which are also used by consumers as retailing outlets) provide insights into retail format characteristics that are not usual in Western Europe. The results provide managerial implications for controlling store image in a dynamic retailing country market.
