Oh wow, you guys sure did your research on this. I didn't know it was growing so fast, eCommerce that is. I wish I had the skills to generate that much sales myself, but I am growing along with it. Anyways, I really believe that eCommerce is the future, and that there will just be warehouses instead of real life shops. I actually think that'd be an interesting future.
