If a surcharge goes unnoticed it is unlikely to influence evaluations of the store, its pricing practices, or the surcharged brand.
After all, surcharges have the effect of offering consumers a unit pricing advantage if they purchase a package size which is smaller than the surcharged package.
Consistent with behavioral intention models (Ajzen and Fishbein, 1980), negative evaluations - whether arising from beliefs that the retailer is using deceptive pricing practices or feelings that the retailer is eliminating the preferred course of action - could then affect behavior by lowering the likelihood that consumers will continue to patronize the store and/or purchase the surcharged brand.
