FWIW - I can also pay more for an item when I shop at the small local hardware store than when I go to Home Depot. Sometimes I do that to support the local merchant. Sometimes I pay more for an item at the local brick and mortar marine store because I like having a nearby place that sells the truly marinized items that I sometimes need. Brick and mortar merchants carry more overhead than their online counterparts and offer convenience that is sometimes necessary. I've had good experience with the marine store's customer support and price matching. I also buy online. In this hobby, there's plenty of purchasing to be done, so it can be spread around, which is a good thing.
