The changing world

I have not entered a shop since Christmas Day, but I bought a fridge. 
On Thursday at 8.20 I had compared prices at 3 retailers, and bought the most competitive and paid for delivery, all online,
I expected that there was virtually no chance that it would be delivered before the New Year. But I rang later afternoon of the same day and was told it would be delivered tomorrow!
At 8 a.m. that day  they rang to say it was coming in the afternoon run. 

Less than thirty six hours after my painless order it will be in situ.
Some guys have got their store and online business working in harmony and working well.
I may never need to enter a shop again.
