    I prefer to shop in the store because you can see the item before you buy it. Many times the things online look different when you actually receive it .

    I like to shop online for things that I know can drastically vary in price from store to store… To ensure that I get the best deal. But for everything else I would idealy like to see the product in-store before I make a purchase.
