Re: Make it hard for their customers, the customers will avoid the stores.
I feel your pain also bermuda,
Those days are gone!
I pretty much buy everything on the net now also.
I only go to the store to buy heads, sticks, mic cords, and things that I know that they stock.
Its better and easier to shop the net anyway.
I Google it, I find it, I buy it. Three days later I have it.
If I have a question I call the eStore and I ask someone who knows.
There is no way that a store could stock a full line of Agop cymbals being that only 1 in 1000 people that shop for cymbals will buy one.
I shopped every music store in Connecticut over about a one year period and I saw 4 Agop cymbals.
I bought 1 of them. It was used.
There are thousands of pieces of drum hardware on Musicians Friend.
No store could stock all of that.
Most of it is drop shipped when it is ordered.
