Who has had bad experiences with Brick and Mortar retailers?

Too bad this is happening about two-three years too late to save some of the great brick and mortar camera stores that were driven out of business by showrooming.  In Michigan there used to be seven great camera/video stores and now only two are left and one is a mere shadow of itself. If people hadn't been so mercenary and willing to do anything to save the last few percent of the price of a camera, we might still be able to go into a store and browse before buying.

Remember the days of no returns? Ignorant sales people? Inadequate inventory. Used car sales tactics? Inconvenient hours? Yes, sales taxes.
