Getting your car parts

One of the great joys of this here intertubes thing is that it changes business models so incredibly. Think about it for a moment. It used to be that if you were a retailed of something, anything, that you had to have all pieces and all parts in stock. But not just that, you had to have them in all outlets of your retail empire.

So if you had 100 shops you needed to have 100 pieces of everything in stock, at least...at least one in each shop. Imagine car parts as an example. Now, if you set up to sell those same car parts on these here intertubes you only need to have stock at one place. Plus, of course, you don't need to be paying rent on all those stores.

Thus your prices can be cheaper (as they are, click through to see), you can offer free shipping on orders over $50 (they do, click through to see) and you can offer almost all parts for almost all cars (err, click through ...well, you get the picture).

Pretty good just for computers, eh? Better, more, cheaper, car parts. All hail the intertubes!
