Default How much is physical shop retail affected by online sales?

Yesterday I went out, I suddenly realised my jeans, t shirt, shoes and handphone all bought from Amazon. Recently, I only bought specs from own days, and groceries from supermarkets and discount shops. And I have many aquarium stuff coming from a taobao shipment very soon.

One thing is i like to go 24hrs supermarkets and wet markets very early in the morning where I picked good value, fresh and good quality stuff to cook. The specific type (not ex type) of sea caught prawn can only be found in wet market. Toiletries I like to go valueshop.

Skinny fit as long as waist can fit, will fit me. I bought high end jeans from Amazon which cost half the price of those in local shop. And yes, if dun like, dun fit just and back. But so far it never happen before to me. Even hair clipper I buy local voltage version from Amazon to cut my own hair.

All my supplements I bought from iherb.

I think some industries are quite badly affected...
I used to buy protein supplements from GNC @ $100++ for a 5lb tub.
Local online selling same item @ $75 with free delivery above $100 purchase.
Then another overseas company selling a different brand (better) at $65++ for a 12lbs bag with free delivery to my doorstep from UK with $100 purchase.

I'm trying to buy my fish food online because it's not available locally or cheaper by more than 50%...
I bought this locally for $43 (480gms)


This one only cost me $135 USD (4.2kg). Haven't arrive, fingers crossed



But not everything is cheaper, must do your homework...
