I don't recall ever having a problem with an online cycling retailer but I've only ordered a few things during COVID and I tend to stick with the major sites.
My local and federal tax dollars go to Wal-Mart which each of its stores receives $400,000 in rent and food and healthcare subsidies for its employees. The profits go to Bentonville and then to the Waltons instead of to local businesses that support the local communities by paying their workers a living wage. Money spent locally or with small businesses is recycled a dozen or more times instead of ending up offshore in a tax shelter. This is why we have a first rate military and everything else is third rate.
