At one time, e-commerce retailers found it crucial to join one of the major online malls
-- such as Yahoo! Shopping, Lycos or Excite -- if they wanted to have any chance of
success. But times are changing as portal sites de-emphasize shopping and consumers find
other ways to access their favorite stores on the Web. "The virtual mall doesn't take the
place of the strip-shopping center that people drive to every week," GartnerG2 research
director David Schehr told the E-Commerce Times.

Good article....but how is it that no one ever mentions anything about Quixtar.com? One of the top 5 or so most successful "Portals" that pays you to shop & refer. Is it because that they don't pay a dime for any advertisement? hmmm?
just a thought...

I plan to do my holiday shopping…
Online only -- I like the convenience and comfort.
Online only -- I'd shop in stores if their stock weren't so limited.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I like to see what I'm getting.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I enjoy the holiday shopping atmosphere.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I want to support local merchants.
Online and in stores -- I want the best of both worlds.
I'm not planning on doing any holiday shopping.
