There are certain things that are just better geared for big business. I mentioned before that I went looking for parts for a friend's computer I was
helping him out with. I went to a huge chain store. The reason being that after exhausting every possible small business the day before we still
couldn't get what we needed.
The large store didn't have much of a selection either but had a larger selection than the small tech shops.
(Spain is not yet a DIY place for computers)
For appliances and parts and such I like the big places. They can afford to order every item you could want and have a good warranty system.
For food, I like small places. I put that in my body and give it to my family. For clothes as well. I don't need every fashion on earth. Groceries I
like small shops. I like to know my butcher, my fruit Guy, ect... I can trust that.
Auto parts or repair, I like someone I can know personally. Same for hardware. I loath home depot. Cool everything but full of A holes that make you
feel unwelcome. ( not all home depots are like that)
Furnature, I like the big places. Large purchases like a pool or what ever, better go to a huge place that wont skimp on the warranty or things like
It depends on what you want and are going to spend. I wont take a BMW to a small shop and expect things to turn out well for the price they will
charge. I wont go to a local pizza shop and ask for their wine menu.
Just use your common sense.
