No need to guess the right size
You probably got into such a situation: you order an item online, confidently choose your size, wait for the package. A welcome call from a courier, a box in hand, and there … a small model. There is always a risk of oversizing in an online store, while fitting during normal shopping reduces this risk to zero.
It's not always cheaper on the Internet
Often, an imaginary discount or price difference is "eaten up" by the payment of shipping and customs duties if the purchase amount exceeds the established limit. Voila - you have to pay a lot for the desired thing.
Additional bonuses and discounts not only during seasonal sales
There are probably dozens of offers from sites with additional discounts, promotions and special offers in the "promo" folder in your mail. Alas, these promotions almost always apply to goods that rarely get accustomed to, even at a sale. This is how marketing works: when a special benefit is mentioned, and even in a limited period of time, the logic is turned off, and the desire to save money forces you to send to the cart something that normally does not attract any attention. Offline stores and outlets that sell items at discounted prices all year round also offer many additional bargaining options. For example, a regular Private Sale in Outlet Village Belaya Dacha. The next closed sale for loyalty card holders will take place from 24 to 27 October. In these numbers, another -20% will be added to the existing discount. You can become a member of the OV Club and receive notifications about such promotions on the website or by contacting the information center (during the days of Private Sale, receive a special postcard of a closed sale in the information center). Sandro, Maje, Lacoste, Furla, Levi's, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Geox, L'Etoile and many other brands are participating in the promotion.
Shopping as a ritual
We admit that there is a special pleasure in scrolling through online stores while sitting at home under a blanket. But it has little to do with the pleasure of a shopping marathon, which is so pleasant to arrange for yourself from time to time. Especially if this is a marathon not on the floors of a busy shopping center, but leisurely walks from store to store, where all things are presented in the best possible light. As, for example, in the Outlet Village Belaya Dacha, where boutiques of all those brands that you are looking for on the Internet are located in cozy narrow streets. The atmosphere of a European city will help you travel without leaving Moscow.
Here and now effect
An instant purchase in a store, the joyful expectation of a packaged purchase and the opportunity to "celebrate" a successful shopping with a cup of coffee trigger the mechanism for the production of happiness hormones - endorphins. As, however, and any other activity that brings you pleasure. Online shopping is often deprived of this "moment of happiness": the impersonal process and long wait for a purchase dulls the feeling of joy from receiving it.
