I recall back in my teenage years going to the mall used to be “fun”. A place of leisure as I walked around browsing and trying on everything with my friends. Now I walk with purpose into the mall to grab that “one thing” that I dreadfully have to stop for. This is 5 reasons why I find online shopping to be advantageous.
1. No crowds
Maybe it’s the industry I work in where I am in a constant surrounding of high volume in a small space but I am pained to approach a mall on Sunday for this reason. Whether it be strollers hitting my ankles or someone holding up a long line for a price check on a G-string at Victoria’s Secret.
2. Less impulsive purchases
When I browse online, I have the opportunity to evaluate my shopping cart before hitting the purchase button. Put me inside a Zara store and I’ll see everything I “need”. I might also need resuscitation at the register when I hear my total.
3. More variety
Many times I’ve looked online at a store where you couldn’t get enough of the selections. Sadly going into the actual store resulted in disappointment of minimal selection.
This is self explanatory. Yaaaasss UPS. Well except that time they delivered my package to the wrong apartment.
5. Price comparison
It is available at a click. No need to buy that shirt at one place to discover it at another for half the price.
