Is stuff cheaper on the west coast?

Seems like everytime I look at forums and such, there is such a huge number of you guys in CA...is stuff cheaper there? More accessible? Man maybe I should get my in-laws to send me some stuff.

Everytime I think of CA...i think of that rap song with dr.Dre and tupac..."California, know's how to party".

This might just be a guess, but California has the highest population of any state, by a considerable amount. Maybe this is why

Although don't bring too much people. Hawaii doesn't need it right now xD
But stuff is DEFINITELY not cheaper in Hawaii if you don't already know that. They don't even offer same shipping rates D:

Shipping depends on who is doing the shipping and who the carrier is. My shipping charges to the Islands are the same as they are anywhere else.

Retail on the Left Coast has an advantage since most of the stuff for this hobby comes across the Pacific in containers from South East Asia, thereby cutting cost and increasing availability. Also the higher concentration of Asian lineage citizens makes for a larger potential retail market for this hobby.

New York City by contrast, is considered to be the Dog capital of the World, maybe because of all the breeding and dog shows that go on in the north east and in Europe, and high apartment population densities, and urban parks. so depending on your pet or hobby, each Coast has something to offer.

Hehe, yeah, thanks Rex. I guess most companies just use UPS, FedEX, DHL etc... Such a shame that they won't offer USPS for the same price D:
