While the fact the department of revenue has reached this agreement, helping out the state is a good thing, it will have zero affect on Brick and mortar business. anyone who thinks People are shopping on line for the reduced tax benefit are only fooling themselves. Online sales is much more about convenience.
People are NOT making the drive to a B&M store, looking at the price, pulling out a calculator and working out the cost with tax. If they do any comparison, they are comparing the listed price to what they can find online... a price comparison that does not involve tax.
The 'Myth' that people use B&M stores to 'window shop' and then are buying online, is a 'pity party' that retailers are telling themselves to feel better about why their business is going down, instead of doing research into their customers and supplying what they want... how they want it.
Most online sales is about convenience that the B&M retailers are not providing their customers. Taxes have little to no affect in that equation. 7 months ago
