Not right now.

Despite the U.S. economy's continuing slow recovery, e-commerce remains a bright spot in the retail industry.

DMNews highlights some positive online retail growth numbers in a recent article, citing some survey stats. For example, according to a ChanelAdvisor consumer-shopping-habits survey, 58% of consumers surveyed plan to purchase their holiday gifts online this year, beating brick-and-mortar retail stores by nearly 20%. 

Furthermore, 41% of respondents said their online shopping habits were unaffected by the weak economy. The amount consumers are spending through online retail shopping is also growing, with the number of shoppers saying they spend more than $76 on internet retail sites per month -- this is an increase of 27% over 2009.
