It doesn't really matter. Its a free world, there is competition, we can all buy at the local store or online. If the local stores mainly shut down that's also fine, it's nature. As long as no one complains that local store are gone, no issue. If the local IT store shuts down and we all deal with India, also fine, but no complaints.
Our purchasing power decrees where it is sourced from, and its not just starter motors. Maybe one day retail stores won't exist. Food for thought. Although I probably wont buy a sausage roll online, so as has always been said, get into food!
