It has been acknowledged by scholars that a positive customer shopping experience provides the store with a great competitive advantage among other businesses, due to emerging customer inclination to store patronization. Furthermore, continuous demand for value among these serves as a driver for further offer development by store chains. However, several other researchers argue that stores experience both -inter and -intra-type competition. In other words, stores also compete for exceeding customer expectations of the shopping experience by offering extra all-inclusive products or services.

One of the objects of the current study in Singapore is the Clarke Quay Don Don Donki store. It has been affected by a similar issue. The current author decided to study perceptions of NIM students as customers of this store. In order to address both challenges discovered by Goodman and Remaud, an integrative conceptual framework based on works of various relevant authors was used.
