I would love to buy my stuff locally. Last Christmas I attempted to buy several gifts from local stores and could not get anyone to help me - I had questions about the features & prices of the items as the displays were not organized and I could not tell what item went with which price tag. I got frustrated and went home and ordered what I wanted to buy from Amazon - all of the descriptions were right there, the price was clear & the stuff arrived on my doorstep in 2 days time.
I will try once again to shop locally - if your store has items in stock & if I can questions answered when I have them my money will stay in the local economy. If you deliver crappy service - back to the internet I go.
