This article is a pretty interesting view on electronics retailers. And to be honest, I really agree with it. Not just because I buy 95% of my camera equipment from B&H, but because it’s absolutely frustrating to walk in to an electronics store to ask a few questions and no one there has any idea what they are talking about. Having a truly knowledgeable staff is such a priceless asset for an electronics store. I even worked at a camera store for about 2 and a half years, and I still bought my equipment from B&H while I was working there. I’ll never forget talking to my district manager about trying to get the store to match B&H’s price on a camera and printer so that I could buy the stuff from the company I worked for, as opposed to someone else. His answer was “if we sold it to you at that price, we’d lose money,” to which I replied “maybe we should be ordering our stock from B&H then.” Anyway, here’s the article and here’s a photo of B&H.
