Unfortunately when people order online and the store closes, or many are closed, people loose jobs. Ordering online I read is more profitable to the stores involved because so much is computerized. Less employees are needed - many costs of running a store are simply not there.
One day we may all be ordering online because there aren't enough stick-and-brick stores left. The savings for the corporations are not passed on to us though. A $25 pair of curtains will cost the same online but now we pay more because S&H are added.
So who benefits in the end? Not us or those who lost their jobs, that's for sure.
