2. First Purchases are largely unplanned pre-store
3. First Purchases are more likely on smaller shopping trips
4. First Purchases are driven by immediacy and specific shopper needs or occasions
5. First Purchases are made by lighter category buyers
6. First Purchases are skewed towards smaller pack sizes with an associated lower price point
7. Secondary Displays are an effective way of winning First Purchases
8. But Price Promotions on larger pack sizes are not good drivers of First Purchases
