    I always go for something and walk out with something and some air fresheners. For detailing supplies, ADS and sometimes Autogeek. We also have a local "auto detailing supply" store here that I am going to try out tonite.
    If its fast, loud, and runs on a flammable liquid...count me in.

    I voted nothing at all. Well, unless I need an auto part. I don't buy detailing supplies there because they usually don't carry much of the Pro Line and no Detailer Line.

    I voted for "just cleaning supplies" but many times I walk out empty-handed. Most times I just drop in to see if anything's on sale or clearance. 2 weeks ago I ended up with 24 bottles of Invisible Glass for .95 each doing that.
    If there's nothing on clearance or sale for a great price, I leave empty-handed.

    I put "Always..." because whenever I go to my neighborhood Kragen store I always winding up treating myself to something for detailing. They always seem to have great prices.

    I would reckon I buy 90+ % of the time,so technically not always,but neither empty handed.

    I'm quoting an old post, but I just noticed that one of their stores is going up just a few blocks from here.

    If they carry the pro line then I will have to pay them a visit.

    Re: You and auto part stores

    Our local auto parts store is ... "not the best". If I order something, they refuse to call me when it's in. They will leave you standing at the counter waiting while they "shoot the breeze" with the old guy in front of you for 1/2 hour. The pricing is way out of whack, and if you ask for a meguiar's product they insist you give them a product number because they dont know how else to find it.

    I buy what I must there and that's about it.

    Re: You and auto part stores

    Most of the stores carry a decent number of Meguiar's products, but nothing I don't already have and usually priced much higher than I can get stuff online. If I need single item, I may pick it up from a local store to avoid shipping; but if I can put it off until I make a full order, I would much rather do that.
