    What is your favorite method of shopping, going to the market or online shopping?

    I prefer to shop in stores, except for items that are difficult to find in stores, like books

      Even I like shopping at stores, with people all around. Thanks for your response.

    I enjoy shopping in the store for food and clothes.  All other items I prefer buying online.  The only thing I do not like about buying online is the shipping fee and waiting until the item to arrive.

    Of recent, I have begun to shop online.  With good planning you can get everything you need, when you need it.  Gas prices are high, let UPS and FedEx run around delivering packages.  Many online stores offer free shipping and have great deals. 

    I can grab my laptop ( pj's or not) with a cup of coffee and shop, free shipping, packages delivered to my door, or I can get dress, waste time in traffic driving to the store, deal with lines once in the store, and oh yes, the store may no longer have the product I wanted.

    I prefer to shop by going to market rather than online shopping. Because I doubt about the quality of product unless I see it on my own.

      Thanks rumanasaiyed, for answering and giving your opinion. Even I like to shop by going to the market. Besides confirming the quality myself,  I enjoy the hustle and bustle too.

    Purchasing gifts online is becoming more popular than going to market due to its convenience factor. Using the Internet to make your purchases are convenient because you can shop anytime you want 24 hours a day and the online gift shop never closes. You can quickly compare pricing and look at things like size, color, availability etc.without going to the store! Is't it amazing?

      Thanks Steve Burgess, for responding!
      I agree, shopping online is becoming very popular. Lately even I have sent gifts to my family via this method. It is convenient and you get lot of discounts too in festivals, plus you can avoid the market rush.

    I am doing on line shopping more and more. It has gotten rid of a lot of stress.
