Come on - admit it!  We've all done it. We go to a local store, touch and/or try on an item only to end up making our purchase online. That "showrooming".  Well, guess what?   Now there's webrooming.

Webrooming is the polar opposite.  You're sitting in your favorite chair – looking for a new dress or shirt on a site like Amazon, for example.  After finding the perfect one,  you jump in the car and visit your favorite local store that you haven't been to in awhile, only to find out that they're matching their price - plus you don't have to pay for shipping.
It's happening more and more and you may find some really good deals locally on Black Friday as brick and mortar tries to compete with the internet.
