Nearest FLGS to me is 20 miles away. You were lucky to get it at that price and from the high street! Was this before it got popular?LOL It's a 36 mile round-trip for me too. This place has a 25%-off for members and membership is free so at the £140 MSRP it works out to that great price.
I'm loving the place these days (Ludorati in Nottingham) because they have really stepped-up their retail efforts and their prices are almost always cheaper than the best I can find online.
