Possible, prices vary at least $4/bag on flourite in my area. The best LFS price plus local tax is within pennies of the price from Big Al's plus shipping. One bag of Onyx sand from BA got an extra shipping price of $7.07 tacked on for me.
And that would have still been cheaper than the local guy who wanted $20/bag.
If it's not a significant difference, I try to support the LFS. But one store tags a H.O.T. Magnum @ $100, and BA has it at $40. Support is one thing, subsidy quite another... :roll:
