what local dealer would want to try to compete with the big guys?
The local bookshop has one advantage over people like Amazon: it's local. That means that people can read before they buy. If the shop stocks what people tend to buy locally, that can be a big advantage, for of course it can't compete on the range of books available. A lot of Amazon's books sell at no, or little, less than a good local bookshop can sell it at, and often when postage is charged it costs more from Amazon & co.
