According to Forbes Magazine when it comes to shopping, everyone has their own style. Some of us are in-and-out. We know what we want, we know where to find it and we'd like to be on our way, thank-you-very-much. Others are in heaven strolling through well-lit retail centers, window shopping to our heart's delight, even if there's nothing we "need."
