Only 4% of 3,000 online consumers believe that catalogs offer better prices than the Internet, says new research from Greenfield Online Inc., Wilton, Conn. Stores fair better in price perceptions, with 1 in 5 believing that stores offer better prices, the firm found; however, 50% of online shoppers today believe that the Internet is the place where, in general, they are able to find the lowest prices.
