    All over the forums I hear people saying that they are waiting or getting a shipment. Why do people buy off line & note in store when you know what you are getting? I have a store five mins away that has everything or if not have it in a week if I ask. Am I just spoiled?

    Everyone has different reasons for buying online ... Some of don't have LFSs around to buy from, or some of the things we want in our tanks can only be found online. Plus, sometimes you can find better deals online. Also, alot of site have WYSIWYG sections which means you get to see actual pictures of the items you're buying.

    Really? What store is that close to Castaic? Most the stuff bought on-line is because of much better deals like Brian said. Also, most local stores don't carry the really high end, top dollar stuff that some long time hobbyists want and look for.

    The store I shop at is called Valencia Pet. They deal with 90% salt water fish. I plan on going through today, so I will take some pic's. They wont have to much today, but what I love most about the store is that they hand pick new stuff every monday from the hole sellers.

    Yup just spoiled. Like myself :mrgreen:

    I have 3 good stores within 15 minutes drive. Many people dont have that option and the closest store to them is over an hour drive. I have never bought live stock online because of the cost of shipping. Dry goods are tons cheaper online than in the store.
