Chances are any electronics components/hobby store will charge more then sites on the internet. Be smart with your shopping online, think ahead to what you might need in the future, (for example that pack of jumper wires you dont need at this moment, but will need later on). compare prices, find deals, looks for cheap shipping or companies located near your state. in the long run you will probably save money buying online. I am fortunate to have a store called "counterparts" in my city though.
