The article reports on the growth of online shopping in Great Britain, which is 38 percent higher during the same time in 2007. The IMRG and Capgemini research suggests that online shopping growth will remain strong throughout 2008 due to high fuel costs and falling disposable income that prompts consumers to go online to get more for their money. Mike Petevinos of Capgemini said that online sale is impacted by economic uncertainty but it is more resilient because it allows people to make smarter purchasing decisions.
