Both stores in the greater Victoria area have excellent staff. Now prices I'll sypathize with you on. But then again that's yet another reason to support local small shops. Almost everything is cheaper at the local commercial fishermans store. WM provides convenience. The same logic that allows me to but Arrowroot biscuits for $4.50 at 7-11. Personally I stay away from box stores in general, I've only been in a Walmart once and I ain't going back. I like supporting the local guy/girl. WM is kinda like a mini box store for sailors (except not cheap) so I only hit it up if I need too. I'm affraid I can't support you on this one. WM is what it is.
