Small mom and pop retailers vs large retailers: Which do you prefer and why?
Take for instance these specialty video game shops. There are not many left cause most went out of business once Best Buy and EB games showed up (we're going way back to the N64/PS1 days). But these shops now cater to those who look for collectable hard to find rare games. But then you look at their prices and no wonder why no one is ever in their store when you can buy the same game on ebay for 1/3 the price. I used to support these small video game shops but theyre just not competitive anymore and theres no benefit buying from them when you can find a large retailer in just about every neighbourhood district these days. Are people going to make the special trip to a small shop if theres no benefit? Nope. So the convenience plays a large factor for me.
Do you mind paying more for a product that gives you better service? Or are you all about the price, no questions asked return policy and convenience in the large retailers having locations everywhere.
