What Is Your Most Enjoyable Retail Website?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
We all shop at websites that sell stuff, but which one or ones do you really enjoy? Which one creates the best on-line experience and why?

I'm trying to find the best examples for apparel and home decor/kitchen items.

damn that is a hard question. i really choose the websites i go to based on what i need at the moment. i also find myself shopping on line less and less now that i am more concerned about fit.

i will say as far as larger retailers go i have always found the brooks brothers website to very user friendly, and fun to both browse and shop. good filtering options, good pictures and usually good stuff on sale. i like bespoke england a lot as well for most of the same reasons and the fact they have many pics for their items all with good zoom capabilities. even though the website needs a good amount of work i enjoy browsing ehaberdasher as well. i just find that they always have fun stuff available.

thats all that comes to mind right now, but its a great question, ill think about more and report back if anything comes to me.

This is a home accessory company in the UK. Clear photos, easy to navigate site, nice little story about each item. It gives me a sense that it is a well edited collection and not just a lot of stuff for sale. I feel like this is a special store that I would like to visit.

Wow a site that still opens a small pop up window to house the entire site. Blech.

I would agree. It adds a lot to the experience since they are very well done.

Mr. Porter has become my favorite site for online purchases. Merchandise I like, good service, and very fast shipping.

+1000 on Mr. Porter. Great shopping experience, great brands, great pieces. Good pics on how to match the item you want with other stuff, the journal, etc.

Mine is amazon, only because it feels really great to buy something thats $2-$5 and get free shipping.

I knew I was going to run out of Siracha sauce soon, and I was not going to the grocery any time soon, so I had 2 bottles sent to me with 2 day shipping for about $10.

Although biased, I'm happy with our very own e-commerce store Worcestershire Leather Company and take the user experience very seriously, although not (yet) in the same league as say amazon or play.com we pride our selves on a first rate customer service, so much so, we do everything possible to make sure the customer gets everything they need to have a great and positive experience when shopping with us.

Other stores we really appreciate arehttp://www.peckhamrye.com/ and http://alfredsargent.co.uk/
Great post btw and look forward to reading others suggestions.

I buy tons of stuff on Amazon, and with prime membership its free 2-day shipping. Great website for not too fancy yet essential stuff and easy to navigate
Also, for specialized clothing/footwear, Backcountry is great
