I prefer shopping at brick & mortar stores but live in an area with a limited selection so a lot of my holiday shopping is online.

During Covid I am responsible for the care and health of my own young children as well as my nephew. I don't feel comfortable loading up all the car seats and going into a store with three young kids

Shopping is so much better when you can avoid people while doing it.

Ever since the pandemic, I've been trying to stay out of stores.

I shop both ways, but on-line is so convenient.

I don't drive, so shopping online makes it MUCH easier to comparison-shop and have gifts delivered.

From groceries to clothes to furniture I prefer as many of my five senses as possible to be engaged. I enjoy the personal experience of shopping almost as much as purchasing the product.

I want to be the only one handling my food, other than those who put it out, and I like to go, its the only outing I have left.

I have purchased clothes on line and had mixed results...when it is bad it is really bad. So, I'm not a fan. Most everything I try to buy in a store because of bad online experiences.

It depends on the item. I do prefer to see most items before I purchase them.

I don't like to buy something I can't see the quality of it at the time I buy it.

I prefer online shopping and will shop that way when possible. However, I do all grocery shopping, personal item shopping and medical shopping at a brick & mortar store.

Food shopping is such a large amount of weekly purchases. There are always items to pick up online now and then, but dollar for dollar local stores come out on top. Or grab & go for home projects.

I like to see the gifts before I buy - old-fashioned, I know.

I hear Broadway is struggling since the pandemic -- perhaps since they've focused too much on vapid, middle-brow spectacle. Where's the next "Odd Couple" or "Death of a Salesman"?
