Depending on where you live, LFS are sometimes a good option, depending on your priorities:
Pros: Some find it easier to envision it in your tank when you actually can hold & play around with it. Some stores have "practice" boxes with sand that you can mock up your hardscape while you shop. Color and texture via online images viewed on your device can vary widely. WYS may differ from WIS ;-)
LFS tend to carry only woods that are known to work well in aquariums. If you are concerned with if the wood will affect PH, you may find comfort from their knowledge.
Con: price, price, price.
