        Miss not having the "farm & fleet" stores found in the Midwest! Nothing like that in most of the country. I am now near to the agricultural mega area in California that produces 60% of the produce for the country. The only things close are Tractor Supply stores that are very recent. Hill's Fleet Farm stores in Minnesota were as large as a Walmart Supercenter...10 times as large as Tractor Supply. They had their own automotive store, and the departments in the main store were as big as an independent business.

          The problem is that to many people just settle for less.

            I was speaking more about general shopping at the "fleet & farm" stores more than just batteries. They are wonderstores that have all sorts of things you can't find elsewhere. As far as batteries are concerned, you should decide yourself where best to go. I would never again go to any place that only offers overpriced Interstate. Made that mistake going to National Tire & Battery, which used to sell Diehard. Could have gone to Sears for less, or to Walmart for even less.
