Tis the Season

January 10th, 2020

That is until the Bowl Season and Superbowl Extended it! So it still Tis!



Today’s post is written by Ivy Ray, Senior Procurement Specialist at SafeSourcing Inc.

It is still that time of year again…‘tis the season for retail wars! The holiday time heightens the battle of brick-and-mortar stores vs online retail. Toys R Us is even making a comeback after closing its doors a couple of years ago. They have recently opened two permanent store locations, one in Houston and another in New Jersey, with plans to open 10 more store in 2020, complete with sensors in the ceilings that will monitor traffic patterns and shopper cadence.

I still enjoy taking a leisure trip to the mall during the holiday season, just to enjoy the decorations and do some window shopping. I may even purchase a few items if I find a good bargain or two. My primary shopping is done online and I’ve also taken advantage of purchasing online for in-store pick-up.

Some customers prefer brick-and-mortar shopping for the ability to physically interact with an item before buying, and for the immediate gratification of being able to take the purchases with you instead of waiting for them to be shipped. There are others who prefer online shopping because of the ability to compare pricing and find the best possible deals, as well as the added convenience of not having to drive, park, or stand in lines at the checkout counter.

The best of both worlds is the option to purchase online pick-up at the local store. This allows for price comparison and you are assured that the item is in stock before you drive to the retail location.

There are still deals to be had and sales to take advantage of. There is room for everyone and there are so many options available for shoppers to take advantage of whichever experience they prefer. Have a safe and enjoyable holiday season, and happy shopping!

  1. Interesting post here. One thing I would really like to say is the fact that most professional areas consider the Bachelors Degree as the entry level standard for an online certification. When Associate Certification are a great way to begin, completing a person’s Bachelors reveals many entrance doors to various occupations, there are numerous internet Bachelor Diploma Programs available through institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions provide Online variations of their certifications but typically for a extensively higher charge than the firms that specialize in online course plans.

  2. Can I just say what a relief to seek out someone who actually is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet.
