If I buy clothes and it doesn't fit it is too much of a hassle to exchange the item. And furthermore the postage will make the cost run up real quick

Ditto on fuel costs, time spent with 3 hours to extensive shopping. Feeding and chopping water daily tasks more important than even Christmas. Like buying locally when possible but you pay for the fuel cost either way. Are we ranchers the only ones that can't pass along the additional costs we are forced to pay??

Weather is often a factor on trips to town for "shopping" -- so I don't have to worry about the roads and going into the ditch when I'm shopping online. Plus I'm supporting the USPS!

Takes less time to shop on on-line! Good shopping is over an hour away.

Poor choice of responses. What about "I buy what I can locally, and what I can't I look for on line"?

I don't like shopping so its handy to go online. Sometimes I ship to the store to save to shipping cost.

I do both. However with the ranch work schedule it's easier to shop on line because I can do it late at night. Also I hate town and shopping. I don't enjoy the crowds and town is about 30 miles away.

While I prefer to shop with my local merchants, there are times my local stores do not carry what I am looking to buy. Therefore, I have to go online to make my purchase.

The majority I believe do both. If they can not find what they are looking for in there local store, they like myself, look for and buy on line.

I rarely go to a store unless it is to Costco for groceries or to pick up a repair part. Much more route planning of each day, even in how I feed the cattle, as fuel is too expensive to do unnecessary driving.
