How does Dawn of The Dead deal with consumerism?

My media teacher requested for me to include this in my resit A2 coursework essay, but I don’t understand the whole concept of consumerism, and how ‘Dawn of the Dead’ (1978) deals with it. A short simplified answer will do please 🙂 Thank you.

    “Consumerism is a social and economic order that encourages the purchase of goods and services in ever-greater amounts”

    Dawn of the Dead is in a shopping mall and it becomes the site of battles between the zombies who have overrun the country! Four human "survivors" who exterminate the zombies and appropriate the mall for themselves – The battles serve as a useful, if melodramatic metaphor for recent theoretical disputes over the nature and value of consumerism
