Depends on what I'm shopping for. If it's food/beer, obviously I would want to go to the store so I can see what I'm buying. For non-perishable goods (i.e. books, music, etc.) I'm fine with shopping online.
I do prefer going to the market for shopping. But I avoid crowded markets or shops. Usually I have my preferences for particular shops , when it comes to shopping for clothes, jewellery or even groceries. But there are somethings that I have to depend on online shopping. For example gifts and other things for my dear ones living abroad. But my children prefer online shopping for everything. They find it very convenient and encourage me also to do so. To some extent they are right too. You get everything online these days and that too delivered at your home. Thanks for asking this interesting question!
If it is clothing, I prefer offline shopping, since I cannot try on what I'm buying. I like to get a fit and do not like to deal with the stress of sending things back, so I shop for clothing offline. If it is any other product, for example, electronics, household items, office supplies, and etc; I will shop online. But only after I have read through the reviews.
Do you prefer to shop on your pajamas or do you like to run around one shop to the other ? My preference is ofcourse Online Shopping and I have given the details as to why in my new Hub. What is your preference and why?
