What is the benefit of purchasing from a retailer who has a show room in
our area?

It’s always a good idea to purchase from a retailer who has a show room,
there you’ll have a place to go to see samples and displays during
normal business hours. There are companies today who simply operate from a
cell phone, that may be a reason to believe that that would keep their
prices low, but typically retail stores have a much higher volume providing
low prices and much better service.
