Stats Canada on-line shopping report
Queen’s University School of Business professor John Pliniussen is available to talk about today’s Statistics Canada report on on-line spending that shows shopping on the Internet is continuing to grow, reaching sales of $15.1 billion last year, up from $12.7 billion in 2007.
“More Canadians are clicking and sticking than ever before. With better selection, more secure payment systems, and easier-to-return features, clicks are becoming more popular than bricks. Whether you're shopping for a car, love, pets, a school, or new body parts, on-line shopping is easy,” says Professor Pliniussen, who specializes in technology and e-marketing.
