Default Re: why the major price difference?

In my opinion online stores are aimed mainly at the American consumer and they use marketing or whatever to overcharge you. So if there is a local shop near by then you are better off buying from them and save yourself the high prices and the shipping cost not to mention you can physically touch and smell the item before you decide.
that's a very good point, never thought about that one. sad part is the closest ME neighborhoods are in NYC or NJ
