Since the inception of online shopping, physical clothes shopping outlets have had to face heavy competition due to the number of vendors who now trade online.
However, quite a number of people are still reluctant to shop for clothes online to avoid the risk of being scammed by internet vendors and the usual exorbitant delivery prices that comes with it.
Another worry is the delivery time and the delivery person to use before their online products arrive at their doorsteps.
