For many of us, any sale at any time is a welcome occasion, and as always, the more astute shoppers among us treat sales as an opportunity to refresh our wardrobes with some of the fantastic bargains on offer. Right now, the high street is buzzing with summer sale after summer sale, and shop windows are emblazoned with discounts and reductions of 60, 70, 80 and even 90 percent.

Whilst this may be a very attractive proposition for many, for a lot of people, sales are a great excuse to stay at home. For those who aren't attracted by the hustle and bustle of crowded shops and frantic bargain hunters this is an occasion to stay away, regardless of the size of discounts or offers.

Well, for the proportion of people falling in to the 'avoid the hustle and bustle at all costs' category, there is an alternative. It is possible to take advantage of sale fever as well as the same fantastic bargains and discounts, without the hustle and bustle and without the frayed tempers.

The answer is Catalogue and Home Shopping retailers, who almost all have an online presence and those that do, have the same seasonal sales, offers and discounts as their bricks and mortar counterparts. In fact, some retailers have online sales that complement their bricks and mortar outlets, as part of their multi channel shopping outlets, and all without the hassles of the high street.

In taking the decision to shop online, in the comfort of your own home, you can make use of all of the usual online features, such as categorising by gender, by size, by colour, by style, by occasion (casual or formal), by price (ascending or descending) as well as every other non sale features such as zoom and pan features, online videos of the latest catwalk fashions, and you can cap it all off with easy payment options and you also benefit from having your purchase(s) delivered.

You may never be the person who shops online regularly and you may indeed enjoy the buzz of elbow room only sales floors, but once you weigh up the pro's and con's of catalogue shopping online with bricks and mortar retailers, the benefits of Catalogue and Home Shopping start to look more and more attractive.

Trawling through the crowds, camping on doorsteps, picking the best bargains from mounds of other sale items that get rolled out at every sale may sound like nirvana to some, and if that's your bag, enjoy.

However, there is another way and that is Catalogue and Home Shopping online. Same sales, same reductions, same discounts and the same choices plus a world of additional benefits… I know where I'll be shopping.

As always, Happy Shopping
