Car Part Prics / store in MI

Hello All,

Why is it parts in Canada are soooo much more expensive than in the USA? (Sounds like a rant i know... but anyone know why it's almost double??)

ex: QuickStrut: CDNTire: $306 / RockAuto $166

Can anyone recommend a good parts store in Port Huron, MI (or very close to it)? I'm looking to make a run for shopping, and would love to get some car parts and avoid shipping

I found an 'Advance Auto Parts' so far...

Thanks!

Yeah, that is a good idea, but i didn't want to pay for a few months of mailbox... so i emailed and found out they charge on a per parcel basis too. Not bad for just using it once in a while.

=== email from UPS Store ===

Thank you for your inquiry. You may receive here at The UPS Store, in
Port Huron by paying $10.00 per parcel for items weighing less than 40 pounds.
The cost graduates up depending on the weight. Again there is a different
fee scale if we receive via freight. We do ask you to address your parcel as
follows:

Your Name
3560 Pine Grove Ave
Unit ZZ
Port Huron, MI 48060

Please DO NOT put “The UPS Store” anywhere in the address. The shipper
tends to use this for the name and then leaves your name off and we end up
with a parcel without an owner.

We suggest you call before you come in to be sure your parcel has arrived.

Usually parcels are checked in by 2:00pm.

We will hold your parcel for 20 days.

Hope this answers your questions,

Thank you,

The UPS Store, Staff
810.985.3400
Located on Holland and Pine Grove Ave just 4 lights north of the Blue Water
Bridge
In the plaza with Arbys behind Block Buster (on the Holland Ave side)
