I’m definitely fully entrenched in this camp; in fact, I don’t think I’ll ever switch back to primarily shopping at physical stores now that I have such good success with online marketplaces
I really love how online ordering has evolved over the past 12 months. For many reasons 2020 was one of the worst years in recent history, but I try to see whatever few positive things I can when times are bad. I’m impressed at how easy it is now to shop from your living room couch. I don’t even need to turn on my computer, I can use my smartphone for every step of the process. Some stores send notification texts for whenever your order ships and when it’s projected to be delivered. Your cell phone is the only tool you need to do all of your grocery, clothes, and electronics shopping for instance. There are even some online marketplaces that will ship and deliver your orders within a one or two day time frame. With this huge expansion in home shopping, it’s easy to see why shopping malls are becoming ghost towns. The initial lockdowns made it difficult for these malls to persist from capacity restrictions alone, but now that the COVID restrictions have relaxed, people are still choosing to shop online for the mere convenience factor. I’m definitely fully entrenched in this camp; in fact, I don’t think I’ll ever switch back to primarily shopping at physical stores now that I have such good success with online marketplaces. All of my cannabis shopping at the legal marijuana stores has transitioned to online ordering and home delivery. Best of all, some of the legal cannabis stores will deliver weed projects within a day or two from the moment you order. When the website is down, you can simply call and make your order over the phone instead.
