The rise of e-shopping significantly changes the way that people shop. Transportation planners have a keen interest in the substitution of e-shopping for store shopping and its impact on transportation systems. The literature offers mixed findings on the relationship between online and store shopping. Few studies have explored this relationship in China where e-shopping has proliferated and retail land use and transportation systems have evolved. Using data gathered from adult Internet users in Nanjing, this paper applies structural equation modeling to investigate the relationships among store shopping, online shopping, and online searching. The results show that online shopping and store shopping have a positive association, however, the effect is from the latter to the former. Online searching positively influences both online shopping and store shopping. These results imply that e-shopping as an information channel promotes store shopping.
