To invest in internet or traditional storefront....that is the question.
Toronto, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
To invest in internet or traditional storefront, that is the question. Survey says: Both! It seems like businesses and consumers are always being told that in the end, they must choose one or the other. This can be troubling for businesses that are unsure of what to invest in - is it better to invest in a website that can take credit and debit cards online or is it better to invest in new POS terminals for the storefront? Recent studies say “both!”
A new study conducted by CBC News states that for Canadians, online sales make up five to eight percent of total retail sales. That's especially encouraging information for businesses that are on the fence about expanding from local storefronts to the uncharted territory of the internet. After all, five to eight percent of total retail sales means that this year, online sales in Canada will add up to $25 billion dollars. However, another report by the Financial Post indicates that it is unwise to write off the traditional retail environment completely. Recently calculated sales for February show a 0.5% increase in retail sales - owing in large to pharmacies, department stores and other brick-and-mortar locations.
Reaching both local customers at pre-existing storefronts and the online market can be a struggle, which is why so many businesses are investigating companies, like MONEXgroup, that offer both in-store POS terminals and eCommerce solutions.
