Where to look for the "bits and pieces" on West coast

We have been boaters for years and understand the danger of shopping solely at the dealerships. We plan to try out the TT locally for a few months and then look in Washington and Oregon, along the I5, for the items we need and want. Our time frame is going to be November-ish. I realize this is hard to answer but - in general- are there store chains that are wise to check online before we leave? Do folks tend to order online or buy at the store locations? Are store stocks depleted after the summer season? One very simple item I checked, a sink top, retails anywhere from $25 to $71, depending on where you buy it. For that degree of saving, I am prepared to do my homework!

WISH we could shop local but most everything we purchased is through Amazon (better selection, better prices, etc.) or Camping World (hour drive one way, and stock varies). We put what we like in our Amazon cart and 'save for later', then pull the trigger when the price dips ... or we really need it. Example: With our TT, we have wide wheel separation; CW didn't have the wider chocks in store and shipping was excessive causing us to order through Amazon; one arrived very stiff and there was no shipping charge to replace it.

We buy almost everything through Amazon. The local retail stores are outrageously expensive and don't offer any more customer service than we get through Amazon.
