Let's say you want to by a premium camera and lens, say $1300-$2000 worth of stuff. I am in Chicago with one of the highest sales tax rates in the country. That's like $130-$200 extra to support local vs. online. I know you are getting personal service and all, but it's a hard pill to swallow.

Have you had success getting matching discounts, or other accessories thrown in? I am not a fan of just giving that money to big government for fun if I don't have too.
