When Recession Hits, How Do Customers React?

Common sense says that in a recession, consumers purchase less. Customers are less willing to spend when faced with uncertainty and decreased purchasing power. Consumers buy less and will only pay the lowest price when faces with a slowdown in the economy. Now more than ever this knowledge is impacting businesses as they plan, change pricing, and cut production but is common sense right? How do consumers really react to a recession?
