What are some of the top online shopping sites?
ShopSmart magazine publishes an annual list to help consumers. The magazine, a product of Consumers Union, the publisher of Consumer Reports, lists items in five categories: "Clothing & Accessories, Foodie Stuff, Home Décor & More, Shoes, and Everything Else."
"At ShopSmart, we are constantly scouring the Web for the best shopping sites, whether they offer great bargains, a fantastic selection, or stellar customer service," said Lisa Lee Freeman, editor-in-chief of ShopSmart. "We've looked at thousands of sites, and shopped at plenty of them ourselves. These 40 are our favorites, and they've all been vetted to meet our strict standards."
Here's the 2010 list:
