I buy both online and on the high street, depending on what it is. I buy books and electronics online and clothes on the high street. Most people buy on the internet because of convenience and price – high street retailers need to find a way to cut costs.”

I shop for everything online, just because it’s easier. High street stores should probably make it easier to find things. I can never find anything in stores — online you just have to go on a search engine.”

I buy on the high street because it’s what I’ve always done, it’s a habit. I’ve never really gone online, can’t be bothered to. But it’s a really bad time for retail, look at what’s happened to HMV for example. Stores need to shift their business plans.”
