Shopping in the traditional retail environment is increasingly being influenced by technologies enabling human-computer interaction. Scientists, as well as retailers, are interested in examining the effects of interactive in-store technologies on customer behavior. An abundance of researchers have examined customer acceptance of interactive technologies, but little is known about its effects on the customer’s experience and its consequences, such as satisfaction, loyalty, and purchase intention. Following the guidelines for a systematic literature review, this article gives an overview of empirical studies conducted on interactive technologies in traditional brick-and-mortar retail stores. Based on that review, this paper provides a research agenda for future work on interactive in-store technologies and their impact on customer experience and suggests possible research methods for empirical studies in the field of human-computer interaction.
