It seems that the internet has changed the way people buy things. With more stores offering delivery, the buyer has the advantage of not having to spend on fuel just to drive to the store. There is also more chance to scout from different sources. More can be accomplished within the time like keeping the laundry spinning or signing pertinent papers while at work. Shopping can even be paused, unlike going to the store physically where you have to finish before going to another task. As long as the store has a website, even machine tools can be bought online.
