Why I buy things on-line...
I need something small and simple. Just some bearings for my garden cart that gets towed behind the garden tractor. 3/4" id x 1 3/8"od with a little flange.
Went to Lowes = Nope. No bearings at all.
Went to Home Depot = Nope. Same as lowes.
Went to Ace = Out of stock, but at least they had bearings in the little drawers of mics. hardware!
Went to the auto parts store = Nope, sounds like a hardware item to them.
So basically drove all around town looking for what should be 10$ for a pack of 4 item.
Wasted more in gas and time looking for it than I would have paying shipping over the interwebs.
But it wasn't a complete waste, I did end up find some other items I had on my list (Chains and load binders) that would have cost a fortune to have shipped....
