Over the years, I have bought thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from Box Stores such as Lowes and Home Depot.
Lately, I have found that I can purchase same item from an independently owned store for less! This is not true with every item but I think a person should have a general idea of price before purchase.
I think a lot of people assume that a bigger store will have cheaper prices and they don't bother to check. Might be that they are in a hurry and don't have the time
