Think about the last time you purchased a product or a repair service for your car; or went to the home improvement store to buy something for the house. I’m talking about anything from alignments to anti-theft devices for the auto or paint to privacy fences for your home.
Do you recall any restrictions on your choices of vendors, other than based on your own preferences? I suspect not, in fact you likely had about a dozen choices within driving distance if you were purchasing routine or common items. I’m also confident that you also found prices to be competitive and high-quality products at most all vendors.
