When you can buy all the same bulk stuff online, for less money? And have it delivered to your door? Less thinking, less time, less cost. Even Wal Mart and Target seem to be understanding that the day of the big box is very limited. Big boxes won't be able to match a good supermarket in food selection and quality, nor could they match a large store like Lowes in the hardware department. So, for me. I don't live in Suburbia, so it seems like its not worth driving out to Suburbia to go shopping? Do you think online retailing combined with smaller more local stores is going to kill off the big box at any point? I mean, they once said that chains like Sears or Hills, Kmart and Montgomery Ward wouldn't go anywhere. Now, I don't shop at any Big Box stores, they don't have what I want. But for those of you who do. Would a combination of cheaper prices online for non perishables combined with the smaller stores and supermarkets for everything else kill your need to shop at a big Box?
