Great story....makes me very happy I've learned about this forum! My LFS was the first stop for me as I got started and quickly realized they neither knew as much as they claimed nor were their prices competitive. I ended up returning over $400 of equipment when I got home and realized they were marked up 75% - 100% from what I could get on the internet from a reputable supplier. I got my money back, but also a side dose of attitude from the owner, insulted I wouldn't pay his prices. I don't mind supporting good, local business with a 10-15% markup, but never a greedy business taking its customers for suckers.
