I find more and more that I order on line and do not go to local stores.

I needed several different pet bird items.... food, etc.... If I had tried to find them locally, I would never have found most of them as the pet stores are so limited as to selection anymore... AND I would have had to drive to about 5 different pet stores... in different parts of the area to MAYBE get what needed.

So, I went to Amazon.com... and got EVERYTHING in one order with free shipping and no sales tax. I bypassed driving, parking, taking a whole day shopping and did the entire order in minutes. It will be here first part of next week.

I LOVE AMAZON.COM!!!!!{#emotions_dlg.wub}

I do as well...mainly because the stock just isn't there and I hate going from mall to mall...store to store. I would love to help local vendors stay in business.

Not me. I actually enjoy going to the malls and having a look around. I like to see things first hand before I buy.

I can understand ordering on line for some things but shoes, clothing, handbags and jewelry, I have to see before I buy them. I enjoy shopping and not having to wait for whatever I need. However, I agree about Amazon. I received a Prime membership for Christmas as one of my gifts and I love it!

I have been shopping online for years...I don't enjoy schlepping from store to store...mall to mall looking for the things I need....

Much easier to sit in my comfy home and search the web and have it delivered to my door...

Saves me time and energy but mostly it saves me the aggravation....

Same here. If I do go to a local store, I'll check at their website first to see if the store location that I'm going to has the item that I want in stock. Some stores give you the option to order online & pick up in the store. I've used that option a few times.

Do most of my ordering mostly on line. I've given up on malls, because I can't do all that walking any more.

I do shop online but most of my shopping is still done at area stores. I like getting out and seeing things for myself.

I also like supporting my local economy and local workers.

I love that I also have access to movies that I haven't seen. My daughter gave it to me because she probably heard me talk about how much I enjoy shopping from Amazon. I hope your son enjoys it!
