Despite a lengthy shakeout that has thinned the ranks of e-tailers, consumers still face
a dizzying array of choices when deciding where to shop online. But the market is already
starting to become better defined. Some categories -- such as online toys, where Toysrus.com
has broken out of the pack -- have seen clear winners emerge. At the same time, however,
brick-and-mortar retailers continue to belatedly muscle onto the scene, armed with name
recognition and the multichannel experience that more and more consumers are seeking.

Consumers have had a tremendous number of choices for many years now. There is nothing special about having 1, 2 or 2 million online stores to choose from.
Branding and the associated shopping experiences will help consumers make choices.

Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
