the filling station has lots of parts as do other places. i just found that Auto Zone has that dayco fan belt 24380 at $19.99, filling station is about $5 less. Napa counter guys who have access to the online warehouses can find that there are ignition parts in Virginia. Points are more than FS and condensers are also. even with postage FS is less and it supports our main supplier.

Perhaps, however postage to NH is not the same as Oregon to Utah and not $5.00. Many auto parts suppliers have access to older parts and if local no freight is involved uness you are in a rush. The F/S has a great inventory and are usually price competitive so it pays to try and get as much as you can on one order to save freight, but it never hurts to check other suppliers.
