    i like to shop so for me a store is an enjoyable experience..the ambiance of the store also adds to this experience...plus i like to see and feel a garment..there's also the immediate gratification of purchasing in store instead of waiting for delivery..of course i don't reject shopping online for good buys although store sales are still more enjoyable

    Definitely prefer brink and mortar, especially if the proprietors are also do sales and are knowledgeable and friendly. I'll only buy retail (for myself - of course gifts are another matter) if service is impeccable.

    I typically try items on in stores and buy them online or on ebay...
