Ahhh, Black Friday shopping at home with my laptop and my chai tea. No lines, no crabby people, and the packages delivered right to my door. :) Thank you Kohls.com, Amazon, and Target!I do not need to make this any more complicated than it needs to be. Put two and two together. I have written several articles on what a soulless and pointless experience most of brick and mortar retail has become. See my latest: The Death and Life of Great American Retailers. People like Bob's wife. People like me. People like you. We no longer have a reason to seek out sociality in physical retail environments. Trips to the shopping mall to "people watch" are a thing of the past. We can gawk and spy and eavesdrop and gossip online all we want now, 24/7. Heck, when Bob and I visited the Mall of America, we wandered. We only stopped in two places for any length of time. The amusement park area of the place and the corridor where the Apple ( AAPL) and Microsoft ( MSFT) stores face one another.
