I hate shopping in the stores. I would much prefer to order everything online. If I could get my groceries (fresh ones) online, I would. I get much better prices and I am able to comparrison shop online at a much quicker pace. Besides, I don't have to deal with all the traffic, or the people in the stores. I have a wide variety of shops that I frequent online when looking for something in particular. I also feel that I am doing something for the environment, lol, by not driving to and from store to store.

I prefer to shop in the stores. I will get to spend some time with my husband and also i enjoy walking around and selecting. Especially when it comes to books, i find it better to go to a shop and pick a book than online. For items such as cds, computer peripherals and movies i shop online. When i feel lazy to go out, i go for online shopping.

Since I discovered the ease of online shopping I haven't been in a STORE, other than for groceries, and hope to never again have to MALL it. I've never enjoyed SHOPPING anyway, but I do now, online. I find that while Going to a store or mall is GETTING OUT, of ones home perhaps; ONCE THERE we're back IN, and so often people SHOP as if in a dream state. I personally know what I want before I ever consider using time, energy, fuel, etc, and if I have to go to a store, I want to be in and out as fast as possible, with my target object.

I havent tried shopping online. weird, isnt it? because we have lots and lots of malls here in the Philippines and you can see actually what you are buying. We are not yet that confindent in leaving your credit card number with someone who can keep a record of it.

i much prefer to buy from the store than online because there are lot of stuff to select from the store than online and there are variety of stuff to choose from. and i want to see the stuff i really want to buy before paying it.

I prefer to shop online as I don't get tempted to buy lots of other things, like I do when I'm going round the shops. I also find that I look for the cheapest place to get things, whereas when I have to walk round the shops I tend to get everything from one shop rather than going round to lots of different ones to find the cheapest thing.

Both actually. But I like to research and get the most for my money, so I do check out the stores online first. If I find it cheaper online, including shipping, or if I can have it shipped to the store I will purchase online. I am not a big fan of going to Wallyworld and standing in those mega lines and fighting the crowds just to find the shelves not well stocked. So online is tempting, but I also only shop reputable companies online.
