indeed Don,- though I did just grab a lovely quote John made in the thread....

It's little wonder to me that the chain went out of business - you don't last long when you don't listen to your customers.

In this age of instant global communications, we tend to forget that the tyranny of distance still applies to physical objects.

FWIW, I buy a lot of stuff overseas, including books and videos from Amazon.
The sometimes higher shipping costs can be counterbalanced by the much cheaper cost of the items.
I bought a single movie DVD in Sydney yesterday $36, and a paperback book $24.99. I haven't looked, but I wouldn't be surprised if I could buy both for $30 combined from Amazon US.

Fair enough. I prefer to buy from local shops where possible and practical. I don't want them to go away. Sometimes they do themselves out of a sale - I bought my Beatles box set from Amazon, NZ$225 (US$186) including shipping. The cheapest I saw locally was NZ$350, and JB HiFi were asking NZ$380.
