Thread: When shopping for things you like...

    When shopping for things you like do you like going to a store to buy it, or do you prefer shopping online?
    Depends if I am shopping online or at the story when I see what I like and I have the funds available. That or I Wynona Ryder and gtfo.

    It is harder to shoplift online. The best I can do is right click on an image and save image as.

    It depends on what the item is, I almost always try on clothes before buying them so I mostly get all that in-store. Also, if I just have to get something in my grasp as soon as possible I will go out and buy it, otherwise I prefer to shop online.

    I just bought a new phone online earlier.

    I just love shopping! Online or not.

    Mostly, I'll go to the shops and have a look around - I like to try clothes on before buying them most of the time.

    Although, if I know the exact thing I want, I'll buy it online. I hate it when I go to the shop, know what I want and it's not there so I go home and buy it online. Wasted journey!

    I prefer going to a store and getting what I want
    Certain genres of books/games aren't as easily available close to me so I end up ordering them online anyway.

    I don't think I'll buy much irl anymore. I bought an mp3 player online, didn't cost much, and worked for over 8 months, and still works, somewhat. Then I bought a new mp3 player for the same price last week, and has already stopped working. Ugh.

    I haven't had much experience with shopping online just yet, but if there's something that I want and it's only online, I'll most certainly buy it online. Besides that, I'll only shop online if there's something I want and I can wait for it and don't feel like going to the store for it.

    I usually like to physically see the merchandise before I make any purchases... Use to be big on Ebay before but these days I would rather look at something in plain sight... Especially clothes because times you may not get what you asked for like for instant knock off designer clothes and bags.

    I like walking and driving around, so I go in and physically grab what I want to buy. However if it's a popular game or something I don't want to go all the way to Gamestop just to find out they sold out I:<

    I do like going to stores to pick up stuff. When Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver came out, I went to GameStop that morning to pick it up!

    However, if it's something in particular that I don't know if I'll be able to find in a local store, I definitely will buy it online. Certain games and anime DVDs come to mind. (Seriously the stores around here charge you over twice as much as what I could likely find online!)

    I have an old person's distrust of the internet when it comes to shopping. I realise it's irrational but I'm more than happy to make the trip to a store. If something can't be found then I will turn to the internet (although usually I just give up )

    My mom loves that shopping online stuff. I've never done it before but I like the idea, except for clothes shopping. I'm like 5'3" so there's a 93% chance I'm going to order something that's too big so I'd rather try on a really good looking shirt, and then get disappointed, and then get a lesser good looking shirt that fits.

    Both of these~! I can't buy anything without trying it on now! Too many experiences in the past with clothes not fitting when another item of the same size and brand did fit in the dressing room. Each items must be individually scrutinized!

    Also, no one has mentioned returns! I could never be bothered to actually ship an item back to a manufacturer because it didn't fit right or had immediate problems. Stores can be revisited!

    Depends on how badly I need what I'm looking for and how available it is around where I am. Sometimes I'll do some Christmas shopping online, sometimes I'll get something for someone's birthday, sometimes I'll buy myself some shiny trinkets, but that's about it.
