Online Shopping

“I’m going to the store,” we used to say to each other.  In the last 10 or so years, however, “I’m going to the store” has changed to “I’m shopping on X Company’s website.”  There are several reasons for this–from convenience to cost to our pure love of technology.  True Merchant looks at the benefits of online shopping.
