Maybe they would do it for free, or maybe even start to stock stuff I start ordering. Worth a shot maybe.
a local vendor is in business to make money, if you pay him a little bit to get shipments for you, it could save you the time to fly there and back, plus not everyone ships to a P.O box
also maybe you will develop a relationship with that vendor and he will simply carry the products you want and take good care of you
