I still like shopping in stores too, even though I’m not usually a buyer. I’m just interested in what’s available and like visiting stores. Then throw in the internet, it’s appealing if you’re a person who’s curious (or if you’re a curious person too I guess) and for shopping selection it can’t be matched by any store.
Where do most people shop online? My guess is at work. Followed by shopping at home and in neighborhood coffee shops. Would you rather be in a big box store pushing a cart or relaxing in a small coffee shop with more options than the biggest box store could ever hold?
What goes around comes around. I don’t think the big boxes that have altered the retail landscape are going anywhere soon. But there seems to be lots of business being transacted in the coffee shop nearby.
