Default Tiger direct retail stores

I normally go through new egg for all my stuff but i just learned that there is a tiger direct retail store about an hour away. Anyone know if thier prices are about the same as new egg or do they jack them up being a retail store? Maybe save on shipping and no wait time when im ready to buy?

I haven't heard great things about them.

If you are willing to make a road trip for parts, there are Micro Centers in Fairfax, VA, and two in Atlanta. you will find killer selections and good prices there.

Dont know if its the same in the US as Canada but I shop at Tigerdirect stores only as a last resort when I need something IMMEDIATELY. Otherwise i shop at ncix.com or newegg.ca, their stores are just as overpriced as their webpages.
