Being a fairly clumsy individual it takes very little for me to knock something over or drop a bottle of milk at the fridge. I must be a homewares marketing dream, constantly needing to replace stuff. Like so many other folk in recent months I have limited my shopping trips – no longer meandering down my local high street for a couple of hours and ending up at one of three favourite stores. These emporiums no longer exist – nor does anything much in the high street. So I do find I search for specific items online – I check out different suppliers and always read the reviews – these are so helpful and very rarely have I found disparity with anything I’ve bought as a result. Homewares are expensive and it’s imperative we research first so we know what the product offers and whether it will fill our own personal needs in every way. The power of having an online prescence for most businesses is highlighted by the months of lockdown when online was our only way to shop. It has made us more discerning.
