I agree up to a point -- if you find a really good store, support it
with your purchases.  But that point comes long before 40% which is
roughly the amount of discount from retail that some on-line stores
offer on lots of major equipment.  As much as I might want to support
the lfs, it's awfully hard to cough up $255 for an Eheim plus about $70
for media when I can get that on-line for $160.

So I try to support vendors for the products at which they excell, and
price, within some limits, is a consideration as well as quality and
