“After a long day sitting in front of the computer, I have no desire to stay in the office to do my shopping online, so I like to use the application in the quiet of my home or when I’m standing in line in the supermarket”, said Beth O’Keefe, a writer from Chicago. “Once, my favorite shoe store had a sale when I was on vacation without access to a computer. I still was able to buy the shoes I wanted with Gilt non the Go.”
