I always feel that street shopping or window shopping is better than online shopping.Both are safe but you get to go for window as you receive articles on spot without any delay and you have a pleasant feeling that you have got a article without any damage.This we can not ensure in case of online shopping.It may have defects and we can not beg upon people telling that it has defects.

I prefer inperson shopping to online shopping. I do like that I can find anything I want online and it is usualy cheaper then it would be at a store but I hate the wait. I also like to get out of the house, it gets boring sometimes just sitting in front of the computer.

ive not been a very big fan of online shopping as i feel that pics can be deceiving. i cant be satisfied with just looking at pics that i would buy. i wanna know the quality and the texture of the goods i wanna buy

It really depends on the shopper itself. For me, I prefer street shopping. That way I can see the product I want to buy itself. I don't do online shopping. There are many scams and tools in the web to get one's credit card info. Though street shopping is tiring, it is still worthwhile and fun. At least you really get what you're money's worth.

me too. i prefer street shopping to online shopping any day. more than the making sure of getting your money's worth, i think it's more about getting the actual experience of 'shopping'. going from one shop to another... trying to find the best of what you are looking for. or even finding something great, unexpectedly. it's very enjoyable... and plus, for example, if you're shopping for clothes, you could try if they fit you just perfectly or not. or if you're shopping for shoes... they might look nice on the internet, but what if they make your feet look hideous? i think the perfect way to shop, is on the streets... but that's just my opinion.

I will pick street shopping anytime. I enjoy browsing through items and going around stores. I also enjoy the experience of it. you just do not get that shopping online. Also, as you have mentioned it's easy to inspect items shopping in real life. I would normally research first online about the item that I want to buy so I am sure that nobody has negative comments about the article I want to get.
