The Future Of Online Retail

Online shopping has become the new normal these days, forcing several major retailers to call it quits and shutter their stores. With Amazon and eBay leading the public exodus from brick & mortar locations to e-sales, is there any room for other players to join the charge?

Enter fashion and design website Fab.com. This relatively new establishment has quickly progressed from that one startup nobody knows about, to the coolest place to buy stuff online. Their system of public buying, selling, and recommending is innovative and exciting. Whereas Amazon and eBay display their recommendations based on user site traffic, Fab lets people recommend and favorite items in real-time.

Let’s say you’re looking for an iPhone case to protect your new Apple toy. You visit the website, click on the live feed, and select the related category. But instead of searching through every single iPhone case available, you simply watch as other users recommend their favorite items. And when the case you’re looking for pops up, you click, buy, and feel happy. There’s something about shopping on Fab that motivates customers to come back and shop again, and not just because the products they sell are top notch.

I think it’s safe to say that the art and fashion-based website is going places with their unique and adventurous approach to shopping. And they’re staffed with incredible people on top of it all. Fab offers everything from furniture and interior decorations, to gadget accessories, artwork, pet gear, and more. You can view their awesome “Touched” commercial here.

This holiday season, consider accomplishing your gift buying through Fab. Not only will they help you find the perfect present, but you’ll log off your computer feeling as if you’ve just conquered the world.
