The internet changed how we shop, even in Davidson County

TYRO — At 8 p.m. on most Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, West Davidson’s Melissa Crotts begins her sales pitch inside a small outbuilding where most people store their lawnmowers and tools. 

She stands between rows of LuLaRoe’s latest styles of shirts, dresses, jeans and leggings, pulling new arrivals from a hanger to try on for customers viewing her Facebook Live show. Because of her live-streamed show, Crotts’ small home-based business has reached a customer base well beyond Davidson County’s borders. She has customers in Maine, Alaska, New York, all over North Carolina and Vancouver, Canada, thanks to the internet.

When Sir Timothy Berners-Lee published the first website on Aug. 6, 1991, he ignited change in our society still being realized 30 years later. Initially considered only a way to catalog information, the internet’s reach into everyday functions has changed how we bank, learn, solve crimes, shop and more.
