This SIG consists of a group of faculty and Ph.D. students interested in examining marketing issues in a retailing context. We seek as goals to communicate and house information of relevance to the field, and to further the field of retailing research and teaching by strengthening the community of scholars involved in the field as well as by attracting bright new scholars to it.
At the Summer AMA Educators’ Conference, we annually celebrate and recognize an individual for his/her Lifetime Achievement. In 2012 we introduced the first Lifetime Achievement Award in Pricing to acknowledge outstanding contributions in the field of pricing over the past 20 years.. The first recipient for this award was Dhruv Grewal (Ph.D. Virginia Tech), the Toyota Chair in Commerce and Electronic Business and a Professor of Marketing at Babson College.
