Online vs in-store

November 26, 2018

For some, the saying “shop till you drop” really only applies when Black Friday shopping. But for the rest of us, it applies anytime we go shopping.

Out of the two methods of shopping — online and in store — which do you prefer? For me it depends on the situation.

Online shopping is great if you don’t want to leave your house, but it does have some flaws. One huge flaw for me is when I’m trying to buy clothes online I can’t actually try them on so I just have to guess on the size — relying on the size guide and reviews.

Another imperfection of online shopping is having to wait a couple days for your items to arrive or paying ridiculously high shipping fees for a speedy arrival.

But on the bright side, online shopping grants you with way more options then the stores have.

If you don’t like to leave your house, then in store shopping isn’t for you. But in-store shopping does have some benefits. One benefit is actually being able to try on clothes and know exactly if they fit. Another benefit is shopping in stores supports local businesses.

All in all, both online and in-store shopping have benefits and drawbacks and get the job done.
