FAYETTE COUNTY -

Online shopping is very convenient and beneficial for Blue Smoke Salsa and its customers.

"Five or six years ago we started offering an online store, and our product online. We were just getting a lot of requests, its seemed like. And we have seen such a big increase today, with it being Cyber Monday, we have had lots of orders come on our website," said Blue Smoke Salsa Store Manager Cecilia Backus.

But more than that, its helpful to you, the consumer.

"It's very easy to navigate and I think that's one thing people are looking for, and it's a secure site," she said.

The traditional method of shopping is still done in the store...Blue Smoke Salsa also has another method. 10 percent of all their holiday shopping is done today, on Cyber Monday.

Backus says online shopping is growing. She believes in the future most sales will be made this way.

"For a lot of people I do, because of the convenience of it. We have seen such an increase from year to year, and I think it will be."

For this business, online appears to be the way to go, something Backus says is growing in popularity.

"Maybe on Black Friday they didn't find what they wanted in the stores or had a couple of items still on their list, and they are taking care of it today."
