Basically where i live, there are very few options for buying computer parts. If i need anything other than a cable i have to make a 35+ mile round trip and even then thats to get to PC World!! We used to have a couple of small independent retailers, but they slowly closed down to the point that the only one left now only does ink cartridge refills and only stocks very basic items. Its so annoying not being able to just walk into town a grab any bits i need, Obviously there must be a reason why they cant make money. Would people rather make the 35+ mile round trip to nip to PC World even if its something as simple as a wireless card? Im aware that the majority of people are brainwashed into thinking they have to take their computer to PC World when something goes wrong, or calling the techguys when they have an issue. But surely theres still space for a independent to make a crust?
