BBC article points to strong growth in the UK for e-retail stores:

[news.bbc.co.uk ]

"IMRG said online sales were 79% higher than a year ago, with shoppers "deluging" e-tailers with 949m worth of orders in the three available Christmas shopping weeks.

This compared with year-on-year growth on the High Street of 4.1%, according to British Retail Consortium figures."

Virgin Wines reporting that the Internet wine sales were very strong at 400,000 bottles in December alone.

I think this is great news and shows that 2003 is going to be the best year yet especailly for everyone in this fourm who know what they are doing. What does everyone else think about this news?

By the way if a mod reads this I think it should be on the front page as it is such exciting news :)
