I think there are too many impulse buyers and B&M stores should still survive. If you go to a shopping mall, there are always overpriced products that you can get at discount stores for a lot cheaper.
From my personal experience, a dress shirt of the same brand from Macy's is probably $50-$60, but if Marshalls has it, it would be $15-$20. Yet, so many people still pay full price at Macy's. If everyone were smart shoppers, many retail stores would have been out of business already, but not everyone is a smart shopper.
I do feel guilty when I go to Best Buy to look at something then buy online. I feel like I am technically stealing from them when I do that.
