But those brick and mortar stores are essentially showrooms for Amazon.com and B&H.com.

You do realize I hope that B&H Photo has a 70,000 sq ft brick-n-mortar retail store on 9th Ave in Manhattan, some of the priciest commercial real estate in the country.

Yes I do. And I never fail to visit the store when I am in NYC. It really is an amazing place. Sort of like Disneyland for Photographers!

But only around 10% of the nation's population lives within driving distance of NYC. And you sell things to all 100% of us. This means the other 90% are handling goods at brick and mortar stores, or even Best Buy, then going home and ordering it from Amazon.com or some other online seller to get a much better price. Or perhaps to avoid sales tax?

Honestly, if I lived in NYC, I'd never buy anything online. B&H has everything you could possibly need. And their people are really knowledgeable and helpful. And if they are out of stock... then Adorama probably has it.
