CLICK, BUY, REPEAT: Consumers Flocking to Virtual Shopping
It’s been the retailing story for years, and new research says it still is! Yes, online sales continue to soar – recession be damned! We were all probably at least vaguely aware of this phenomenon but to see it in such stark numbers astounds anew.
