Finding the time to get to the mall or your favourite stores while they’re still open isn’t necessarily the most feasible of ideas in today’s busy society. Although online shopping isn’t a new concept, its popularity has increased significantly in the past few years. According to an October 2011 article by e-Commerce Guide, “U.S. online retail reached $175 billion in 2007 and is projected to grow to $335 billion by 2012 “. In a study done by Nielsen Company in 2010, 83% of North Americans were already shopping online, and according to LFPress.com (London Free Press), that number has increased 24% since then.

As the weather warms up, we still see many groups of cyclists on the roads of Prince Edward County.
There is a long history of cycling in the County – this photograph of a Picton bicycle club was taken sometime at the turn of the 20th century. The group posed at the fairgrounds – notice the grandstand in the background.
Thanks to the Prince Edward County Archives for this peek into the past. You can search some of their digital images online or give them a call at 613-399-2023.
