I am John Q Public average buyer, let's say. Why on earth would i come to ebay to buy cheap junk from the Chinese? Why on earth would I buy stuff from Toys R Us off ebay when i can buy direct from Toys R Us at one of their local stores or directly from them online? Why would I but DVDs, CDs, or books when i can find them faster, easier and as cheap and as fast on the River? If as a buyer I wanted to buy from WallyWorld, I'd go to WallyWorld or their website, not ebay. I think it is the ultimate delusion to believe that ebay could ever become a primary retail DESTINATION site. Especially with the tide of public opinion regarding ebay more and more as a joke or an evil corporation. Ebay has lost touch with the primary reason people came there as buyers to begin with: to find rare or unusual items. not run of the mill dollar store stuff you can buy anywhere.
