Like REI, generally good quality at high prices. However, also like their prime competitor they have an increasing tendency to include merchandise of borderline design and offshore manufacture that leaves you entirely dependent on their liberal return policy.


My first stop for everything from landscaping materials to repair widgets. Like all big box stores, it is best if you know the materials, products, uses and store layout as the staff is typically not as informed as the folk at your local hardware store.


I shop at Costco regularly enough for the "executive" program to be worthwhile. Gas prices are close to unbeatable - and I use them around the country. Meat and fish are top bargain if you can use (or freeze) the quantity. Other products are typically best price, but it is important to do at least some price checking. Ultimately, even when quality control issues raise their head the liberal return policy provides solid foundation for customer confidence.


This is supposed to be a supplier of materials used by furniture repair shops, antique refurbishers and hobbyists. The common denominator for their customers is that they have projects planned or underway, and need components. Failing to communicate that they are - at best - an intermediary and neither a manufacturer or direct supplier leave the customer completely exposed to their lack of delivery.


Lots of reasons to pick up the Prime service, but even nominal research into product pricing demonstrates that "free shipping" is an embedded cost for merchants that use Prime
