I can't purchase Schluter products locally either, Tim. Is why I buy everything I need from our friends at Tile Experts.com.
Very fast shipping, shows up at my doorstep or jobsite, no sales tax, very reasonable shipping costs. Ain't no way I can drive 40 miles to town for the price. And if you don't see something on his site you think you want, just axe him do he have it. If it's made by Schluter, the answer will be yes.
My opinion; worth price charged.
