Does anybody deal with online suppliers instead of going to a so called electrical wholesaler(i say that as i dont think they really wholesale )
Any good online places to check for Materials

I got this Site from the Electrical Business Magazine that came in my Mail today. At least i can compare Pricing with the Local suppliers.

HD is on an acquisition spree. They recently bought out a respectable supplier in Ontario. I'm all for competition, but I hope this doesn't kill the smaller suppliers, esp. the independents.

Think about the problems you get with orders when the wholesaler is in town. I dont mean to shoot them all down but inevitably something in your order is wrong - so what would happen if it was online orders? I guess it would be okay for simple orders like a case of boxes,switches etc.
