Oh, it depends! I'm not a "retail therapy" type of shopper, so if it's crowded and there's too many people, I definitely prefer online shopping! My husband is the shopper in the family.

I find that there are some items I want to buy from a particular store, and one of those is online only.

I also find that sometimes I can save money buying online, for instance, I will try on clothing or shoes locally, but may find a better sale price to buy the same thing online.

I know there are cities where you can even do all your grocery shopping online, but for me, I really like looking at the meats and produce before I buy them, so that's something I prefer to do in person (I did have a bad experience ordering meats online, my order was not delivered promptly, and I did not realize part of my order was spoiled until I opened the packaging to cook my Thanksgiving turkey -- that bad boy got hustled straight to the outside wheelie bin! That was an expensive and smelly learning experience).

Default Online Definitely!

I prefer to buy online. Mainly because where I live the selection is very limited and I like to have exclusive items. I will take something back to a store though. Otherwise.....online.

Online. The selection is bigger and I can easily compare prices. Plus I don't like to deal with crowds.

It depends. For clothes I'd rather go to the store. I like to try things on before I buy. But if I'm buying beauty products or kitchen products, I can buy that online.

If I can, I shop online. The only thing I really shop for in the store is groceries...and clothes...cause let's face it, EVERY time I buy clothing online it never fits

I prefer going to the mall, since all i do everyday is sit on my computer because of work, every once in a while i go out and shop, also i can try things on me when i go to the store just to make sure everything fits well on me

Online!!! My local grocery store has now started online shopping and I will be checking it out! You can even order online and they will have it ready for you to pick up if you decide you want to do that! I might try both!

When buying clothing for myself I have to go in store. However everything else I buy online. It's easier. Ships to my door and is kinda like Christmas when it arrives

Default Either/Or?

It depends on what I am shopping for. I prefer to try clothes and shoes on before purchasing. Not everything fits the same. Alternatively if it is something I know will fit properly, and I can get it cheaper online, then, yes, online works.

There are so many variables and it is truly an item by item basis as to what way works best for me. Anyone else feel this way?
