Resultantly, the Internet, has brought about communication and convenience and has changed the way our lives operated. Internet shopping has been a boon to shoppers craving for timesavings in their jam packed lives. The offering of convenience and product uniqueness has been an attractive substitute for shopping of products in-store. As such, will its growing popularity mark the demise of the traditional brick and mortar store?
