I shop at Amazon whenever possible. I find they generally have the lowest prices, and their return policy is top notch, even if you order something wrong or you just don't like it. They give you a pre-paid shipping label to send the item back.
I buy a lot of what I buy from them. Even those items one might get from that big store with a "W" on it. Like trash bags
My little town of 6000, the county seat, does not have a regular grocery store. Only a Walmart . I truly hate that place. One has to park in the north forty. Then even to get something like a dozen eggs or gallon of milk one has to walk past all this other crap to get to that section since it's at the rear of the store. No customer service to Speke of and the prices are no low.
I drive 8 miles to a much smaller town in our county, which has as nice little grocery, where I can park within ten feet of the front door. It doesn't take long to get what I need and then the store packs it up and carrys it to my car. The prices are only a little higher
So I've taken to getting as much as I can online and that is usually from Amazon. I can get it within two days. I can shop from the coziness of my easy chair after reading reviews on it. Lots better selection
But then, we have no hardware here either .

My main problem with Amazon is they don't figure state taxes into your purchase, so I have to figure 'em later when I'm doing our taxes.
I choose online retailers that include the tax when buying.
Our town has roughly 19,000 people. We have a Wal-Mart with grocery. We also have three other major grocery stores in town, plus four others within 15 miles. Then it's a 40-mile drive to the next major grocery store.
I'm not nuts about Wal-Mart either. I don't like the way they come into a town and use their economic muscle to put others out of business, then cut back on services. Still, I can often find things there that I can't find elsewhere.
Even so, I still avoid the place because of the huge parking lot and long walk to the store.
We have a Target with a more reasonable parking lot.

Now that is what I call service! The closest thing to than in my hood is the Shoprite grocery store has home deliveries! You order what you want online & the food will be delivered right to your front door in a refrigerated truck. The delivery charge is $10. Best of all NO TIPPING! A lot of people in the apt I am in uses their services. I haven't jumped on board yet. However, I am very tempted as I hate grocery shopping.
