Another Reason Not To Go To Camping World

Had to order a new CO2/Propane detector, and knowing better, ordered it from Camping World. Took 2 weeks to get it. In this internet day and age, 2 weeks is a long time. But that's okay. What really gets me is they charged sales tax. I live in Missouri. The part was shipped from Bakersfield. Not even processed in Missouri. Not a lot of money, but the point is that they are such a crummy outfit to deal with, even just ordering parts.

Agree two weeks is a long time in today's age. As for tbe sales tax if a company has any locations in your state they have To charge sales tax.

If Amazon doesn't have it; you don't need it.

The sales tax is something that will be charged regardless of where you live. The tax law uses something called Nexus. If Camping World has any employees or locations within the state of Missouri they are required to collect the tax. The days of "I'll buy it online and not pay the sales tax" are going to fewer and farther between.

I'm not as big of a believer in the on-line shopping experience as many are. Every sale that happens on-line when the same product is available locally hurts the local businesses. Then when you need something in a hurry you won't be able to get it.

You said you knew better and ordered anyway. Well done As far as the tax, what are the odds the money was spent on something that actually benefits us taxpayers?

X2....I don't buy on line for a lot of reasons, like you said it hurts the local businesses. Pretty soon you won't have the local businesses to run to when you need something in a hurry, or need some advice. If you look at a lot of the local businesses that have went out of business, it is because they can't compete with people who buy on line just so they don't have to do anything, even drive to a store, even when they aren't saving money. I like to see what I'm buying/paying for and appreciate some of the experience that those local shops have to add. As for taxes, it's a part of life, if nobody paid any taxes, we'd be in an even bigger mess than we are now.

I totally agree- to a point. The part I needed (CO2/Propane Detector) was such a difference in price at the local dealer that I had to order online. Get me within 5-10 dollars, and I'll buy locally. But when you're 20 bucks higher than online, I gotta go with the cheap price. It gets kind of frustrating, doesn't it? At least now I understand the tax part. There's probably a Camping World in every state.

I only go to Camping World to see and hold the part or item I intend to purchase to make sure it's what I want. Once I am satisfied I go home and order it from Amazon for 10 to 20% less.

Actually the law regarding sales tax and the Internet never passed. What probably happened is that after the sale someone realized that the company selling you the product had Nexus in South Carolina. To give you an example, most of the work being done by NYS sales tax auditors is being done outside of NY State. That is a huge generator of sales tax for them.
