Who Needs the Mall When You Can Shop Online?

I'm really diggin this online shopping thing. Ok, so I’m a little late in the game, but I’ve come to realize that I don’t have the patience to deal with parking and large crowds at the mall anymore. I’m getting older and it’s just not my thing. With so many websites and blogs out there that can make the shopping experience much easier, why not sit with a glass of sparkling iced tea and just enjoy shopping in the comfort of your own home - or outside on the patio with the warm sunshine. Heck, why not take the laptop to the beach and get a tan while browsing the web?

Well, I recently found out about a online shopping search engine called Twenga. Basically it is an online shopper’s search engine based in the U.K. You type in what you’re searching for and it directs you to online shops where you can buy what you’re looking for. There are many product categories to choose from including fashion, health and beauty products, gifts for your fashionista friends, and fashionable furniture. Twenga is able to aggregate merchant offers and narrow down exactly what you’re looking for.

This leads me to wonder if shopping malls or physical retail shops will become extinct in the future! Why would I shop in a boring mall that carries all the same kind of stuff when I could do some virtual shopping in Paris?
