Now a days.. there are a lot of things that can be access easily, on of it is thru internet shopping... you can just stay home turn on your computer and surf the net, shop and use your credit cards.. in just on click of the mouse you already purchase the things that you want with Hazel free.On the other hand there are still a lot of people prefer to go shopping on the mall with friends, They got the chance to fit them and they mind as well enjoy the moment walking and chatting with fiends while shopping, though it takes a day to shop in the mall but there are still people who really use that day for shopping... How bout you.. which do you prefer? On line or on malls?

For me I prefer shopping at the mall. In the mall you can fit the clothes that you want, you can see and inspect the accessories or perfumes and other stuff that you're going to buy. Unlike shopping online, you are not really sure of the items that you are gooing to purchase online. But it really depends because I sometimes buy online and my favorites are amazon and ebay.

I haven't done a lot of shopping online but with my schedule I might be doing more. I don't really like to shop anyhow so this could be the best thing for me. I do get involved with things where I get Amazon gift cards and I like that.

i would prefer to shop at the mall.. so i could see the merchandise that i would want to purchase, i can check the quality.. and besides, shopping online is a bit risky...

i would prefer shopping at the malls to avoid the chance of being scam.and at the same time i will able to see the exact features and picture of the product that i am going to buy.And i have the chance to return it if there is damage.

That depends on what I am buying, but most of the things will I buy on the mall. But it can be something that it doesnt sell in my country, because I am living in Europe and its alot of things that they are not selling over here... or maybe if I am buying something expensive, then I will check online if its cheaper to buy it online.

For me it depends, usually I like to buy wearable item in the malls as I can tried it on and see how it looks on me, if I get it online it may not looks good on me. For other things like books, household item etc I will get it online.

Frankly,I would prefer to shopping on malls.As we know,more and more people like to shopping online.Because the items online not only cheaper than on malls,but also can save a cost of time.For example,we want to buy clothes,I choose shopping on malls,because I can check the size,colour and other details.On the contrary,shopping online you cann't check carefully.What's more,if the size,or the colour and other aspects didn't suit for you,it will be difficult to exchange.

i never shopped online^^ i like to go shopping with my young sis^^ we usually go many times when we have money to spend sure ^^ about shopping online im a bit afraid bcs some people sometimes shop online and have to pay much for things. also sometimes people can lie about a product or something and in the mall you can see how it is better^^ anyway there are people that shop online and they are happy^^ i think that shop in mall is better^^ but shop online has an advantage that you dont need to leave house to buy something when you are too tired and want to relax and see cute things and buy it, you can do that by online shopping^^ so i guess thats why many people like to buy things online^^

It depends what I want to buy. If I want to buy clothes or shoes I always prefer to go to a mall, because that way I am able to see the things in person and I am able to try them on before I decide if I want to buy them or not. I like to visit books stores in a mall, but I also buy books online. Sometimes I check my local book store at first, and if I can't find the books that I am looking for I buy them online instead. Some of the books that I am interested in haven't been tranlated to Danish and in those cases I buy the English version online. I have also bought cds, films and games online especially cds that aren't available in my own country. I recently bought a watch online, and I wasn't completely sure if I was able to make the right choice based on a picture, but I am very happy with the result and I really like the watch that I bought.

ya,i m prefer only malls because when we go and see the things that time we should analyze okit is good or not.so we can feel be good shooping but when we buy a online means that time we couldn't show the items directly.so the shopmakers excanhagetheir things.so that shop will be bad time.

it depends on the person. there are still those who don't have credit cards and don't have a very distinguishable location. i haven't done any online shopping yet so i prefer malling because as you've pointed out, i could fit the clothes and see it for myself. then there's the bonding with friends and other activities that can be done other than shopping when it comes to malls.

I prefer to shop on malls because I had a bad experience with shopping online. I got ripped off of my money, the quality of what I received did not match how it was described online and stuff like that. That's why I prefer shopping on malls because I am assured of the quality and there's even warranty on some products. Best of luck

I prefer shopping malls because I get to see and feel the merchandise I'm buying. When there is damage from the good that I bought, I can return that during the specified time frame. You'll never know who you are buying goods from when you're online. I prefer earning online than shopping online.

For me I would prefer shopping in malls. There are many reasons like security of the items you bought and also I can actually see and try if the item I bought has defects or not. It's quite difficult for me if the item would have damages because I would have to ship it back to the one who sent it. I would rather shop locally in shopping malls.

Dear friend, It depends upon the item I going to purchase, it is books, I would shop online. It is any furniture items I may perfer to go for shopping malls. Moslty I prefer malls, the product could be checked well, price can be bargained, other details can be verbally known, other producted of same type can be compared, so on are merrit side of shopping in malls. Moreover in online the transportation is not a problems as it come to door step and at time can be saved too.
