The objective of this study is to examine factors that determine the consumer purchase intention and choices on private label brands. The research is conducted in a developing country, Malaysia, where private label brand is a emerging trend in retail industry. Data are collected from quantitative research by analyzing 300 questionnaires. Factor analysis, correlation analysis, regression analysis and other statistical methods will be applied in this study. One of the main reason the researcher conducted this research is to find out the variable and factor influencing Malaysian consumers’ purchase intention towards PLB. This research studies on a few factors influencing consumers’ purchase intention towards PLB. Statistic show that Malaysian consumers have a positive overall purchase intention towards PLB. The results show that the most important factor influence consumer purchase intention is not the price anymore, whereas consumers start to pay more attention on brand image. The advertising and packaging of PLB can be considered important for consumers.
