    I totally get that and I prefer to deal with things Live instead of ordering online.

    The few Stores that survived on my city are exactly like that, at least one it is. They value the Customer and they match Thomann prices 99% of the times, unless its a super special which Thomann doesn't do actually, Andertons has a lot more Deals (done by Brands) than Thomann, like the Banshees for 500 euros...

    I prefeer to buy Local if the price diference isnt huge or if its the same, something that costs 200 euros online or something they have it Store for 210-220 I prefer to give my money to the Local store, but this is because I feel valued as a Customer, not by all employees but by some, in fact on my vacations I had a situation where I just wanted to leave without buying anything for a stupid remark one of the employees made:

    - If you think its a bit too much order it from China...

    Theres no reason to even say this shit directly in the face of a Customer... I didn't said anything by respect to other employees that always treat me super well and im not a guy that buy expensive stuff either but it stayed with me the retarded attitude...

    This was the main attitude in the old days before the Internet (and Thomann), at least in Portugal in vast majority of Stores... always seemed they were making us a special favor in selling us gear. New generations totally dont give a fuck and only buy Online...

    I guess the colors that are left are the ones people bought, and the others weren't profitable.
