“Toys R Us announced this week that its stores will remain open for 87 straight hours leading up to Christmas. Not to be outdone, the internet announced that it will be open all the time always forever.”
– Seth Meyers, SNL Weekend Update
When I heard that joke on this week’s Saturday Night Live episode, I laughed out loud. Then I realized how true it is. The internet has always been the place where you go shopping in your pajamas at 3 am. Sure, you could go to the 24 hour CVS but they don’t have the depth of selection.
Not only is the internet always open but it’s retailers are delivering goods faster than ever. From overnight deliveries to 1 hour local service, to instant downloads.
