Online specialists like Amazon.com have been gearing up for Mega Monday
But not everyone finds it necessarily the best way to do their shopping.

Outside the very physical presence of a supermarket, there are different opinions about online shopping.

“I’d actually rather go and touch it and see it, to be honest, rather than go online,” says one woman.

Another says she does about half her shopping online. “Convenience,” she adds, “and it’s easier to compare prices. If it’s something expensive I’d go and look at it at the shop first and then buy it online at the best price.”

A large number of players have been contacted individually about playing in the GB team and most of them want to play for the team . There is very little the SFA can do to prevent players taking part.
