Due to the increasing noise of technology and online shopping, we at times forget to appreciate the fun offline shopping offers! Right from groceries to accessories, we find everything online.
But, online shopping does not give you the convenience of checking for defects before buying the product. And if you are someone who is skeptical about buying a product even before seeing it, we feel you.
Here are a couple of reasons why we think offline shopping is incomparable:
1. The happiness of offline shopping and spending time with loved once
Wasn’t shopping supposed to be a ‘feel good’ activity? Do you remember the satisfaction you felt while shopping from a brick and mortar store? That feeling has no match. Online shopping is overshadowing the tiny perks of traditional shopping. Instead of trying on the dresses, clicking a selfie, and taking your best friend’s suggestion, we check the products on the internet and imagine how it would look on us. Where is the delight in it?
2. No need to wait for the delivery
In offline shopping, you look around for dresses, pick the ones you like, try them on, buy the best ones and leave feeling content with the purchases made. Whereas when shopping online, you browse through the dresses, add the ones you like to the cart, contemplate if they would look good on you, purchase it and wait for it to be delivered home. Basically you do not get the pleasure of walking home with shopping bags in online shopping.
3. You can actually experience the product
People who shop online will agree that sometimes the product they received was either too big or too small for them. Sometimes the colour of the dress in the product image is slightly different from the one that’s been delivered. When you purchase products from an offline store, you can be sure of the size, color, defects, etc. Online shopping can at times be disappointing, but not offline shopping.
4. Personalized recommendation from sales staff
Don’t you love it when a sales representative picks a few dresses or tops saying how they would look fabulous on you? And we cannot forget the times when we really needed a suggestion from sales representatives and they have been kind enough to ensure you have a comfortable shopping experience. Right from the size of the dress to understanding your fashion preferences, you need a human to suggest the right outfit, shoe, or accessory.
5. No need to keep looking for discounts
While purchasing online, we often feel the need of waiting for a day or two more… because just in case the prices drop. Due to the changing prices, we never know the real cost of the fabric. Thank God, there is no sudden fall in the cost at an offline store. You can be assured that you have received the best and sensible deal!
6. Can’t rely on online for immediate purchase needs
Your school friends have planned a reunion tomorrow and you are eager to attend it. But, you do not have the right outfit for the get-together! Of course, you are meeting these guys after years and you want to look your best. So, can you rely on an online shopping website during such a time? No! But, you can go to a store and purchase a beautiful dress.
