This research examined whether and how prior customer participation and the relationship commitment of the brand enhance experiential behaviors of offline stores such as Apple, Huawei, MI, Oppo, Samsung, Vivo. A structured self-report questionnaire was administered to collected 258 survey responses and structural equation modeling was applied using SPSS and AMOS. The results of this study are as follows: First, customer participation increased normative commitment, emotional commitment, and persistent commitment. Second, the relationship commitment of consumers enhanced various experiential behaviors such as entertainment experience, educational experience, escapist experience, and aesthetic experience. Third, consumers with high brand fanship reported more positive aesthetic and escapist experience. The results of this study are expected to provide effective marketing strategies for companies setting up offline experience stores by understanding customer participation and involvement that should be considered for consumers targeted.

본 연구는 휴대폰 오프라인 매장에 초점을 맞추어 고객이 매장을 방문하여 제품을 실제로 체험하기 이전의 고객참여 수준 및 브랜드와 맺은 관계몰입이 매장에서의 체험에 어떠한 영향을 줄 수 있는지를 분석하였다. 애플, 화웨이, 샤오미, 삼성 등 휴대폰 오프라인 매장을 체험한 259명 중국 소비자들을 대상으로 데이터를 수집하였다. 연구결과로는 첫째, 고객참여가 브랜드에 대한 규범적 몰입, 감정적 몰입, 지속적 몰입에 모두 유의한 영향을 미치는 것으로 나타났다. 둘째, 이러한 관계몰입은 매장에서의 오락적 체험, 교육적 체험, 현실도피 체험, 미적 체험에 부분적으로 유의한 영향을 미치는 것으로 나타났다. 셋째, 브랜드 팬쉽 수준이 높은 고객일수록 관계몰입이 미적 및 일탈적 체험에 미치는 영향이 더욱 증가하였다. 본 연구의 결과는 고객의 브랜드 체험과 관련하여 고객의 참여와 관계몰입이 미치는 영향을 이해하는데 도움을 주고 체험 마케팅에 시사점을 제공할 것으로 기대한다.
