Online shopping has increased in popularity each year. One of the most popular online stores is amazon.

Amazon has nearly limitless items, with a special membership called Prime. Prime members can be introduced to many special deals, free returns and free two day shipping.

But, is Amazon really better than shopping at the mall?

Amazon is an easy one click away from buying items, and might be more convenient than driving over to the mall. You also don’t have to deal with the hassle of other shoppers.

Shopping at the mall has its perks. You don’t have to wait for your items to ship; you can simply just buy them at the store. Returning items is also easier at the mall.

You can also try an item on to make sure it fits. The mall can also create time for you to spend time with your friends and family. Most malls have a restaurant which you can go out to eat at after shopping with your friends or family.

Amazon has taken over the retail world. They bought Whole Foods and sell everything you could possibly think of online. But shopping at the mall creates social interaction you can’t get with Amazon.

To some people, less social interaction could be a good thing. To others, shopping without social interaction is an unpleasant experience.
