Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by thedevilinme

Advantages: Touch and feel
Disadvantages: Online prices rising

As I have said before, 70% of all purchases on the planet are made by women, 70% of the money on the planet generated by men. Women love to shop and there is nothing men can do about that. We love em so we let them get on with it; even of they are doing i ... Read review

Balancing what we need with what we think we need.
Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by ladyofflame

Advantages: Brand awareness, reaching more people, more promotional tools.
Disadvantages: Change in this case means sacrifice & growth which is upsetting especially if not merit based.

What is a highstreet? Silly question? I realized its quite easy to focus on a side of highstreet and online shopping e.g. the thriving (usually a brand that has both physical and virtual presence but not always), the dwindling (focusing on highst ... Read review

Some very interesting points! Very well writtenx by Chippytarka
I hadn't really stopped to consider that there are different types of high streets depending on town/city population which will of course have an impact on footfall and potential purchasers. Price seems to be the overwhelming factor on choosing to purchase online and with higher overhead costs its hard to see how the majority of high street shops will survive. by Mildew82

Advantages: The High street must change to survive
Disadvantages: or we will all end up permantently plugged into our computers

more to it than just blaming online
Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by mikeyc123

Advantages: online gives more protection, can shop from your home
Disadvantages: passing trade goes down, loss of the personal touch

Shopping habits have massively changed and according to sales figures from the past few years we are, as a nation, spending more, especially at Christmas, on line. However, is this leading to the demise of the high street well it is, I think, more complic ... Read review

The Future Of Our High Streets Could Be At Risk.
Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by jojodixon

Advantages: Convinient, cheaper deals can be found online, less hastle
Disadvantages: Loss of jobs, unsociable

The internet was invented in the late 60's, and I doubt if anyone could have imagined what a big part of people's lives it was to become. The world wide web changed the game for high street shops and has given customers a new way to purchase items. It wa ... Read review

Gotta Keep On Top If You Want To Keep Your Shop!
Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by Nar2

Advantages: Offline: A chance to socialise, bargain hunt, taking time with shopping, Online: quick service.
Disadvantages: Shop keepers apathetic to change, Online shopping can lead to fraud, poor delivery services

Seven years ago whilst going through teaching training university and holding down three jobs, I can’t quite believe I also found time to work at a Pound store. I was identified to take on an assistant managerial position, which then led to learning how t ... Read review

I think parking might have as much a part to play in the debate as online shopping, good point raised! by littleowlski
This is exactly why I decided to write about issues not normally addressed in the forefront of this argument but still of major importance because I knew there'd be other members who'd already done it comprehensively and eloquently such as you :-)!

Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by SalvadoreHushpuppie

Advantages: Real world shopping is here forever
Disadvantages: online shopping no comparison

I am a great believer in what goes around comes around. Yes its true to say that on-line shopping has had a massively detrimental effect on the High Street. However if like me you like nothing more than visiting the shops of a Saturday/Sunday afternoon fi ... Read review

Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by ryanando

Advantages: Deals, deals, deals
Disadvantages: a smaller high street

Deal or no deal? Shopping can be great fun, especially if you actually have the money to do it. Most of my shopping consists of carefully checking balances and seeing if I can squeeze out a little extra treat so I tend not to enjoy shopping much at ... Read review

Well put and reminds me of the sentiments/practicality for book vs ebooks or letters vs email. Gosh I have it tough having petite feet and half sizes (also vegan and hate stilettos and flats) where shoes of the type I like tend to be available in one or two pairs per shop order so when they're gone they're gone but your issue sounds terrifically difficult! by ladyofflame

Hustle, Bustle, Home Shopping, Identity Theft... Oh My!
Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by Scotlass712

Advantages: Convenience of a relaxed, at home shopping experience.
Disadvantages: Loss of jobs, identity theft

While few the things excite me more than dealing with traffic, parking, crowds, queues and people who stop in mid aisle for no apparent reason, the idea of shopping from the comfort of my couch is somewhat enticing. Online banking, movie watching, ... Read review

Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by cr01

Advantages: Our town centres could look and be better at the end

There’s no doubt that the internet has altered how we socially interact with each other and how different the availability of some items have changed. This twin change is already impacting upon the shape and look of our high streets; however to my mind ho ... Read review

Very good points made by missrarr
Very well put and I like the wider contexts given for bigger perspective. It's also interesting to see what changes in which towns e.g. most of the highstreets I've seen have many clothes shops and if one closes another replaces it, we've always had 'cheap household shops' and still do with the pound ones though more of the latter since Woolworths left the highstreet. I too have seen a decline in book and music/dvd based shops (like when Our Price was bought by Virgin but those shops didn't really take off) but have seen a rise in second hand media from pawn shops, charity and pound shops. I've even seen a book exchange which is great (especially since they have great sci-fi not available in any of the libraries I frequent). The homogeneity of the highstreet does appeal to many it's true unfortunately but great to hear the independent area where you live is doing well the decision makers willing to invest in smaller names. by ladyofflame

Don't blame online shopping for the demise of the high street
Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by alliewallie

Advantages: There's more choice and better value to be had by shopping online
Disadvantages: It's a shame the high street has to suffer, but I wouldn't blame online shopping purely for that

I do not consider myself a fan of online shopping, sometimes it's necessary and often the biggest selection is online but I like to shop on the high street too and think it's sad that every time I go shopping more and more shops are closing. BUT IS THAT ... Read review
