Interesting article from Bilan, where they comment the study from PWC related to purchases of Swiss people who reduced in 2014 but the value spend increased. Another interesting fact is that the people from 55 years old and more are picking-up pace.
Here at home we are bad example as we buy almost nothing via internet, the only thing we buy from time to time are the Nespresso capsule of our espresso machine. The other internet expenses, is only related to air ticket, hotels bookings or Itunes.
We still prefer to go to the shops, try, touch, smell etc. it is like reading book, we cannot figure out to use electronic devices. We love the touch and smell of the books and the other thing I like to do is to pass/give my books. In my office, every book I finish end-up in the well in evidence at the entrance, so everybody that is interesting, can take a book, read it and hopefully pass it further.
What about you? how is your preferences, live or internet shopping?
