With gas at $3.50 I no longer just "pop out" to check out something. I like to do a little research first. So when I was looking at shelving units I checked out Lowes and Home Depot. Lowes listed the item, told me if it was in stock at the local (well 25 miles away) store and if it wasn't, I could order it and have it shipped to the store for pickup for free.
Home Depot listed the item, didn't and wouldn't know if it was in stock (check at the store) and you couldn't order it online.
I think I'll drive 25 miles.
