The question is no longer whether or not online shopping is here to stay, it's whether brick-and-mortar stores are going to make it.
In early 2019, the sales volume of so-called non-store shopping, aka online shopping, surpassed the volume of sales at brick-and-mortar locations for the first time in the nation's history. With four out of five Americans now shopping online, this type of commerce is the new normal.
