Some studies have found that shoppers have strong preferences for supermarkets, even when they are not the closest to home, and seek retailers that reflect their socioeconomic background. Hillier and colleagues used the Food Acquisition and Purchase Survey to test earlier findings against a national sample, and looked at the importance of store and personal attributes in choosing a primary food store. The authors found that shoppers chose larger stores, conventional supermarkets (vs other store types), and stores closer to home. Personal attributes also mattered; Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program participants were more likely to choose full-service supermarkets, as were Hispanic shoppers, and white shoppers were more likely to travel farther. Results show that store and shopper attributes help us understand how food access works. View the paper
