As you can see at left, I'm located in Australia. Australia is a first-world country, but the product availability is AWFUL. And, if you manage to even find what you're looking for, you pay three-to-four times as much for it. So, I'm sorry local shops, but if I can import bulk amounts from iHerb and pay less than buying individual quantities from you, then you've got a mark-up problem. Internet shopping isn't killing the retail industry-- your unrealistic prices are.
