Retailers To Ditch Ecommerce?

from the who-needs-it? dept

Many retailers are apparently thinking about ditching their online efforts as they realize that setting up an ecommerce operation costs them about the same as setting up four or five stores, but with a much smaller payout. Of course, I’m wondering just what they’re doing that it’s costing them so much to set up their online presence, but that’s a different issue. In the end, these companies will probably have to go back online, but will have to start from scratch all over again (which might not be a bad thing).
