As a customer, internet shopping gives you the convenience of shopping from the couch and after closing time. In the crown lock some things could even be bought like this. As a retailer, the internet gives you a platform where you can pitch yourself and your service, and most importantly, it opens up additional sales opportunities for you. In order to catch up with the sales that Amazon and Co. snatched from you during the Corona lockdown, you should think about e-commerce, especially the fact that you serve local customers much better than the large anonymous platforms.
Customers will certainly find everything they are looking for in retail giants like Amazon and eBay, but to use it they usually have to get involved with unknown suppliers and nationwide delivery. On the other hand, they know the businesses in their neighborhood much better, and they have also adapted to their buyers. This is a benefit for stores: shoppers can purchase items they see in the online store window, even when the store is closed.
They could then have the goods delivered to their homes by a car service, collect them on site or make an appointment to test them. Good advice from specialty retailers could also be extended online to post-store hours.
