It depends. Basically I am a get it and get out kinda' guy. I use the internet to shop for everything except groceries. I even use it to shop for fast food searching menu, pricing, and carb count to keep within my diabetic diet. The main reason I use the internet is I research products, descriptions, pricing, comparisons and recommendations. Pretty much internet prices will be followed in major retail stores. To choose online or in a store is a matter of urgency, convenience, and shipping cost. Also, regard urgency many large retailers offer online stock availability. I use that if the same product is offered at different locations to see where to go if necessary.
