Well, sort of local. One place is 35 miles away and the other is 70 but the farther one is on the way to Tallahassee where my kids live.
I scored 2 cans of GOEX 2FG and one can of 3FG for $66 ($22 ea). Not cheap but lots cheaper than buying it online plus I didn't have to buy 5 to 25 lbs. at a time. The other place has it too but want $25.95/can.

Well, you guys have to add in sales tax, and your gas.

I just bought 4lbs of Goex Olde Enysford from Grafs for $106 delivered. A lot easier than what you guys are doing.

Not really. Sales tax was $4.29 and it's right on the way. We were going to my grandson's first birthday party. I go that way at least 8 times a year and my kids come down every few weeks so they can pick it up for me, if necessary.
That's over $3 cheaper per can than what you paid but Olde Eynsford is usually more expensive than plain GOEX so it might be a wash.

Guys means anybody. It was on your way. What if it wasn't? Mine was cheaper than what Ray has to pay.

Online really is a savings if you can buy in higher quantities. $15lb, and free Hazmat and shipping.
