This is interesting as I have found Sam Ash Hollywood to just blow away GC Hollywood in the customer service department these days and not completely horrible in the selection.
Truthfully no local Pro Audio stores carry all of the things I am interested in these days. There is always at least one product line I want to compare that that none of them carry.
There was a time when GC Hollywood was pretty damn good. Those days have long since gone. Now its pretty much a place of go in knowing what you want. If its not there don't bother asking. Their customer service sucks.
Places like Sweetwater have a much better overall selection and some of the smaller online stores like Zen Pro as well.
