For me it's shifted from mostly online to mostly in store, since I started working in a city centre!

But how about you, do you prefer to shop online, or in store?

Depends on what it is I'm buying, there are some things I'd rather go into a store to buy (clothes & food shopping) but I generally prefer buying online.

Ditto for food shopping - I find online way more convenient, but I always forget so much stuff that in store it is!

I do mostly all clothes shopping online, stores for food although I'm itching to switch to online, I pretty much try my best to avoid dull tasks, and picking out the right avocado fits that description.

Tbh It’s a lot more effort because you need to compare different versions of it. But if you go to a store you just buy the one that they got - but I can’t be bothered to go the store. So either way I have to not be lazy which no can do. I typed for so long I deserve a 30 min break now.

I do seem to find more things online but that doesn't stop me from going in stores sometimes and picking up some clothes from there.

I prefer to go into the store to buy stuff, but I do like to browse the store online first though! I hate it when I see something I really like online, then go into the store to see it / try it on and they don't have it in store!

Online, much cheaper and easier to compare.

Unless it's clothes, I never buy clothes online. It's worth paying the extra to go in store, have a look, try it on etc

In store if possible. I like to know I have what I want rather than waiting to see if I like what I bought a week ago.

it depends tho...i its random things like i don't know stationary or wires Nd stuff then yes but i it's expensive stuff like electronics or clothes then from a trustworthy shop otherwise no.. Once I bough roller skates from this very famous sports shop over here and instead o size 5 it came back as size 3 and it was hassle sending it back plus not all my money was returned

I prefer shopping for clothes at actual shops, there's nothing worse than finding something really cute and finding that it doesn't fit you properly.

I shop online for almost everything else though.

Depends what it is. I'd rather see things 'in the flesh' such as clothes, and larger electrical goods. but the rest I buy online. Although, I am quite sceptical about spending over £100 online

Personally, I like to shop in store so I can check the item clearly but with our current situation, I think online store is much practical and safe
