In S Fl , CompUSA has quite a few B&M stores in the area, I end up buying most of my parts from them. Their prices are inline with most e-tailers.The only issue is they aren't always up to date with the latest hardware at the store closest to my house so I have to go farther to get what I would normally get online. Paying the taxes is usually better than paying the egg's "updated" shipping charges.
CompUSA is not the same company today that they were up until a few years ago. They essentially went out of business, and TigerDirect acquired the rights to the name, logo, and web site. They are now TigerDirect's B&M storefront.
All of the former TigerDirect stores in the Chicago area are CompUSAs now, and the prices are (usually) the same as the prices on TigerDirect's web site.
The years just pass like trains. I wave, but they don't slow down.
