The shopping age has changed drastically in the last few years. It used to be an all-day excursion to find the perfect gift with lunch at the mall with over-crowded food courts and crowds of people everywhere. Now a-days you will be hard pressed to find an oversized crowd at the mall. It seems a lot less people go shopping from day-to-day locally. This can be nice for crowd purposes but this is having an affect our economy, health and job environment.
Does this mean that people are buying less? The answer to that is NO, they are not. In fact now that on-line shopping has become more and more prominent, it is easier then ever for people to get bored or become addicted to shopping. Heck…you can even sit during a movie and spend hundreds to thousands of dollars without leaving the couch!
There are a lot of stores where you can buy items very conveniently, with fast shipping and even get deliveries on Sunday’s, but what shoppers don’t realize, or ignore, is the impact it has on the local economy.
I found an awesome flier that explains very well what this does and everyone should read it.
Here it is.
