There are better prices online compared to department stores simply because there are no overhead costs in a variety of ways that increase the prices of the items. Also, most products online comes from the manufacturer or seller so there is no middlemen involved, which adds up on additional expenses, which of course will be taken into account when products are being priced. Online clothes shopping is also made more exciting with promos, deals such as free shipping, and even bulk or volume discounts. Researching the different prices, promos, and deals are also far easier online. With malls, you really have to walk to and fro in search of the different prices for the same item. Online clothing shopping is made simpler with just opening the different websites that sell the same products, and voila, you can easily compare. There are also reviews available so you get more ideas, like whether it is as it appears on the site, especially when it comes to the size and color.
Variety of selections, collections, and choices are available online compared to stores and malls because of the physical limitations or warehousing logistics. You can view different choices with a click of the mouse, unlike offline, when you have to literally go from one store to another. There are so many reasons and benefits for online clothes shopping, but the main reason more and more people are into it is expediency or convenience. You can do it from the comfort of your home, you need not walk, dress up, or commute, and the best thing is, online stores are open 24/7.
According to the latest news, online clothing shopping is now in even in Europe. Women who want to freshen up their wardrobe do it in the comfort of their home rather than shopping at malls and downtown stores. This is by far a signal that U.S. fashion retailers like Abercrombie & Fitch or fashion shopping sites like Asos.com that have established themselves online will be expecting tough competition from European brands, and fashion retailers are upping the competition. It is said that Europe’s online spending is expected to increase this year and is expected to make a huge impact on U.S. retailers who have a lot of shoppers overseas. The big freeze that happened in December kept shoppers away from stores emphasized the need for brick-and-mortar stores to consider online marketing. Even high-end Marks & Spencer ramped up their existing online presence, and those stores with an online shopping presence saw how their sales soared online, especially when they stores sales stalled amidst heavy snowfall.
