5 Reasons Why Physical Shopping Can be Better Than Online
You actually get to go out and explore the local area, talk to people, and meet new people! You connect with your local community. It can be a very rewarding experience.
By shopping locally you fuel the local economy and support employment in the area. Your friends, family or maybe even you can find work in the area because there are people like you who are supporting the local community in a very real way! Get involved with the community and the community will reward you.
Some deals or items may not be available online. Many brands have strict policies when it comes to the online presence of some of their items or lines. Some of those can be purchased at bricks and mortar stores only. And some of the best deals are found in the specials racks most stores have. I bet you have bought something you loved from a specials rack. Everyone has!!
Very often your local shops will match or even beat online pricing. These may not have a strong online presence but it doesn’t they don’t have great deals too!
Items like clothing, glasses, shoes and so on should really be tried on before you commit to purchase. That way you can better check size, colour, comfort or style fit. Of course a ‘no questions asked’ returns policy is common with online stores. But it is extra time and trouble and only the shipping companies are better off.
So go out and shop local, you’ll be glad you did!!.
