It's nice to snare a bargain but using an online service to save a few bucks will make it more difficult for tackle shops to survive.

By having an online outlet themselves. All the major online tackle stores have an associated retail store as well or the importers wouldn't supply them.


They will still have greater overheads due to the cost of running a shop.

I always try to shop at the smaller independent stores...I don't mind paying a little bit extra if it means keeping them in business (you cant beat hands-on expert advice and they keep the big guys honest)

Same with me Matt try to support the smaller guys. Try not to use BCF and drive past cranbourne to other retailers.

The way I see it is the retailer can make a profit either by selling bulk items at a cheaper price
OR
Make a profit on individual items at an inflated price but less items.
I think Most online retailers go for the selling bulk for less cost per individual item but end up making more profit because of more items sold.
Just my opinion.
