What's the point of going to a different retailer if they're the same price, are you saving on shipping? Otherwise I don't see a point of ordering the same product from a distributor you have to ask about when you can easily get what you want from the store.
Unless it's just for bits. Then maybe check out Bits and Kits? They have a pretty decent selection from what I've seen on their site.
You got it; it's to save on shipping. The USPS international rates are ludicrous these days.
