Today, engaging the public’s feelings appears to be a new spearhead for some companies, but practitioners have realized the value of using sensory marketing. The objective of this study is to discover the kinds of situations that affect consumer behavior. A survey of 75 shoppers in a busy supermarket in Antananarivo was conducted using non-probability purpose sampling. Methods such as observation, interviews, and bibliographic review were also used to develop this research paper. Multivariate analysis such as correspondence factor analysis (CFA) and Multiple correspondence factorial analysis (MCA) were the main tools to explore the variables. The results showed

Tactile marketing creates a positive behavioural reaction in consumers and visual marketing improve their well-being. The findings provided contribute to the improvement of a strategy to better engage consumers in supermarkets.
