Shirley Jones Gets Too Distracted By Mall Shopping

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some oldsters prefer shopping the old-fashioned way – going to the mall – but Shirley Jones definitely prefers going online more.

As she puts it, “Every time I go to the mall, I end up at the jewelry or makeup counter and I never get anything done.”

This year, things are different. The former mom of The Partridge Family is doing all her shopping online because otherwise she wouldn’t get it done.

That’s because Jones is doing lots of concerts this Christmas as well as promoting two new films, Grandma’s Boys and Hidden Places that are scheduled for release in January.

It’s a busy schedule for anyone, but Jones says the best aspect of shopping online is “you have a choice of, say, 7,000 stores, as opposed to 70 at the mall.”

Still, she admits there is one disadvantage to online shopping over visiting the mall. In her words, “I have yet to see a food court when I’m online.”
