There's actually a great music store in town here now and they are cognizant that they have to be competitive with on line. But I do remember when the market and society were less fluid and these stores seemed to charge whatever they wanted. There was a place in ATL called Rhythm City that was the big boy of the era and we'd ride up there to get decent deals. I bought something there and the local guy complained that I didn't keep the money at home. His best offer was almost double.
