Do you support your local camera shops?

Not talking about big box stores like Best Buy, Walmart, and such... Personally, I would love to support the local camera stores, but the prices for their stuff are just outrageous. Their products such as lenses and cameras are @ least $100 higher than online and your big box stores. They do not do price match either. And then they wonder why people would rather wait 2-3 days for an order.

If the local stores charge $25 more, I'd be okay with it, but $100? A recent visit to a nearby camera store wanted $650 for a Sigma 17-50 F/2.8 when I can order it from amazon for like $500 and the same lens from Japan for $350'ish on ebay
