Poll Started 12th April 2011:

Are the shops a means to an end or a glorious pursuit in their own right? It's often assumed there's a gender gap in the way we look at shopping, is this real or just hype?

Assuming you've got the cash, rate shopping as a leisure activity (5 = high)

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
