It is very hard to support the local dealer when prices are 50%+ higher than on the internet. I stopped in at the local dealer, an independently owned Ace Hardware, that has been around for almost 100 years. They are having a buy 1 Stihl chain get the second 1/2 off sale so I wanted to check out their prices. They are slightly better than the other Stihl dealer where I bought my saws from. $32 for 26 RSC 74 $42 for 33 RSC 84 Now, even at buy 1 get one 1/2 off, it hardly makes any sense to buy from them since I can get 26 RSC 74 on the internet for $18 and two sets of 33 RSC 74 on the internet for $45 and both are with free shipping, no sales tax, and no travel/gas. While I was there, I decided to take a look at their Fiskar products. Just bought the following from Amazaon: X27 - $40 X7 - $20 Sharpener - $10 Total $70 At Ace Hardware, they were: X27 - $60 X7 - $30 Sharpener - $17 Sales tax - about $6 Total $113 Difference, $43 or over 50%. They just make it so hard. Wouldn't mind paying 10% more, but 50% plus, and then they did not even have the chainsaw on the shelf that I want to buy.
