I Don't See The Appeal Of Online Shopping

I just don't get the appeal of online shopping. You see pictures of the items but you can't try them on or see them first hand. Then we have have to pay shipping and wait for the items to arrive.  You pay a hefty fee for shipping and don't even get to choose the shipping company (I want UPS or FedEx, not USPS). Then I have to wait half a week or more to get the item, try if on if it's a garment or shoe, then return it if it doesn't fit? I can save time and money by heading out to the store myself, try things on, put them back on the rack if they don't fit, and bring it all home the same day.

No online store will ever beat a retail store in my opinion.

Yeah, but you don't have to leave your house and you can be naked.

I agree for shoes and clothes. I have to feel them, see them and try them on.

I have bought othet things online such as electronics or something I can find online for a better price.

I like online shopping because I can do it on the toilet.

I love online shopping. I'd rather shop online then go to the store. I don't like crowds or busy stores.

Everything I have ever bought online has always fit just fine. Personal preference I guess.

Tshirts and baby clothes are pretty much the only things I buy online clothing wise.

But I sure do love getting packages :-) especially amazon!

Distance to the mall, needing someone to watch the kids or take them in the dressing room with you, not having your size.

I have a pain in the butt foot - it is easier to order online and return.  My shoes are not cheap (nor are they trendy LOL)

I needed a couple of work stations for my sons' play room, went to OfficeMax and they didn't have them in stock. I could go around the city going to different stores to find them, or I could go home, order them online from officemax.com and wait 3-5 days for delivery.
I chose the latter.

Sometimes you can't find what you need and online shopping is the only place u can find certain things
