A Smarter Way to Shop
No delivery delays.
Local stores help to sustain vibrant, compact, walkable town centers-which in turn are essential to reducing sprawl, automobile use, habitat loss and air and water pollution.
Physically touching and seeing items in person allows for shoppers to get a feel for the item in store before a purchase is made.
This also will help cut down on post holiday returns.
Let’s not forget having the opportunity to ensure a fit is correct, whether it's a pair of pants, a shirt or a warm winter jacket.
We’re innately social creatures and sometimes we can really use the help of a personal shopper to point us in the right direction.
Shopping in-store allows customers to talk to the employees and other shoppers and get advice about the best products for their lives.
