Where You Love To Shop

Consumer Reports has a very comprehensive, very awesome article featuring the results of their best places to shop survey. Some highlights include:

“Readers who bought electronics products online were happier than those who bought at stores. That was the case for every product category we have data about. It proved especially true for digital cameras, audio gear, camcorders, DVD players, and digital video recorders. The top overall e-tailer was Crutchfield, closely followed by Costco.com, BuyDig.com, Amazon, Buy.com, and JR.com.”

And here is something we really agree with: “For retailers with both Web-based and physical stores, you’re better off going online.” Why? Better selection, in-store pickup and in-store returns. —MEGHANN MARCO
