Two ways to shop include shopping online and shopping in person at physical stores. Shopping online seems much more convenient, and anonymous. You can visit a website to browse items, select items of your choice, and check out, all without being face to face with or chatting with anyone at all. Shopping in person requires somehow getting to the physical location, and walking around to locate the item you desire. I prefer shopping in person. I enjoy the experience of going outside. I also like chatting with the store clerks. They can give very useful advice about what I am interested in purchasing.

Shopping online vs. shopping in physical stores
As scientific technologies developed faster and faster, our common lives have changed more and more, one of which is our shopping way.
We have been shopping in physical stores, where a salesman may introduce many products to you and give you some advice about which one is the best choice, and you can try those clothes or shoes in person, even change another one if you find it not suitable to yourself.
However, a new shopping method sprang up --- shopping online. There appear quantities of various stores on the Internet. You just need to click your mouse, and then you can see different kinds of commodities in them, with colorful pictures and detailed descriptions. If you are not clear about something, you can ask the customer service staff for help, who usually very kind and glad to answer your any question. Moreover, you can compare the same kind of products in different stores at the same time, which is able to save your time and avoid embarrassment.
But every coin has two sides. Shopping online is not exceptional, so there are some disadvantages. First, you can never be sure whether the product is exactly what you see in the picture or read in the descriptions. What you receive may be much different from what is in your mind, for instance, strange color, wrong size or bad quality. Secondly, the products may be lost in the express delivery.
From my perspective, I prefer shopping online, because I am too busy to have time go shopping in physical stores and goods online are usually cheaper. But I always choose the shops which have good reputation.
