Neither do I but I've noticed the biggest mall in our region has not been as busy as normal for this time of year. I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this? And this is not even just about the malls but the big box stores are not nearly as busy here either.

darn

I have noticed here,we don't have any big malls close by,but even walmart is not as busy as I would think it would be this time of year

I wonder though if that has a lot to do with online shopping?

LOL, that's a good one. I dunno though I just really realize a BIG difference here with the traffic at the shopping centers. I went in Walmart yesterday and the store was a dead zone at 4 in the afternoon. I literally walked right up to a checkout with not a single person in line.

I'm waiting for the End of the World sales. Might be able to get a 60" plasma Samsung tv for really cheap or even free. LOL

On a serious note, I have noticed that the malls here are not as packed as they were years before. With all the great deals and free shipping that online shopping offers, I think more and more people are opting to go that route instead. Plus I've noticed as kids get older (teenage years), more parents are doing the going away out of the country vacation gift instead.

Is it legal to send my kids out of the country? I promise I will stay here and wait for them to come back

On a serious note,I did probably ninety percent of my shopping on line this year

If were clothing I would agree,but a lot of the stuff I bought this year was cd's and crap that I wasn't crazy about going to Walmart for,easier to just order them on line and have them shipped where they are going

True but I hate paying extra to ship and then interest on the credit cards...I think it's great that people can use their credit cards and then pay them right off but we have never been able too (more like hubby ruins it everytime by racking it up)

I find a lot of sites do free shipping, just to suck you in.

Same here. If the product is defective, I like the idea of packing it up and taking it back to the store to replace with another product, versus packing it back up, calling the place where I ordered online, shipping it back, then waiting weeks for them to send another one.
