Why I Shop Online Instead of Local Stores (Even When I Don't Want To)

I recently had a need for a 6' HDMI to Micro HDMI Cable. I wanted to buy it locally. After checking the websites of several brick and mortar stores I discovered only a couple of them carried the cable. And they wanted $35 for it. That seemed a little steep, so I checked Their price (including shipping) was $7. Now I would often prefer to get something locally -- and I'm even okay paying more to do so. But FIVE times as much?
