I mean you can get everything online. In fact, I'll make a blanket statement that you can get everything cheaper online. (Exceptions proving the rule.)
And they'll deliver it right to your door!
It's an agoraphobic's heaven -- you never, ever have to leave the house.
Sure, there are some restrictions -- buying in sufficient quantities, waiting for it to show up. But, those are manageable -- with the money you save, you can buy more, and you just have to plan ahead.
So why do stores exist?
Is it possible that people still want, oh, I don't know, a human connection? A real person to interact with? That whether they admit it or not, most people want more than just a cheaper price?
Or is it just, the job ain't done yet. Someday everyone will get their stuff online. Never have to leave your holodeck -- just plug in the feeding tube?
