While anger is the dominant affective reaction following service failure, little research focused on its potentially damaging effects. Different consumers can have different emotional reactions to the same event depending on their expectations and personality situations. The present study aims to discover the circumstances where consumers reveal an anger emotion toward the apparel retail stores. The study also investigates how this anger situation impacts consumers’ purchasing decisions and attitudes toward the apparel retail stores. Results revealed five major sources of anger that influence consumers in a negative manner both in terms of their attitude toward a particular retail store and their acts of purchases from the store.
