Angry B&M Pipe Tobacco prices??

holy batcrap, batman!!!
was at the local pipe club meeting, and i always try to buy a tin while i'm there, whether i need anymore or not.... i think i'm gonna stop, unless it's just something i gotta have.

someone should kick me in the jimmy, but i forked over $27 for a tin of the new Peter Heinrichs Curly's last night. they had a 200g tub for $48... i know, better value, but i'd never had it, didn't want to be stuck with a ton of stuff i don't like (although it's a va/per, not many of those i don't like).

so, when you all swing by a B&M, you see the tin prices of $14 for a 2oz SG tin, what goes through your mind?

i do some quick basic math, which takes 10 minutes, and realize that i could get DOUBLE the tobacco if i ordered online. and if i order enough, then i don't need to factor in shipping costs from certain vendors.

i'm all for keeping the shops going, but DAMN, $14 for a 2 oz tin? what's crazy is that their 100g tins are only marginally higher, like $21 on average.
