The objectives of the study mainly to explore the influence of lighting in retail cloth stores on consumer purchasing behaviour. For the study, ten retail cloth stores were selected in Hyderabad and Secunderabad, the twin cities of Andhra Pradesh. The study was conducted on 100 consumers who visit in these retail cloth stores. The data was collected by using an interview schedule and the results showed that the lighting condition in the retail cloth stores was not a factor that can influence the consumer shopping behavior. Planned purchase, impulse buying, time and money spent towards shopping under lighting was found to be moderate.
