Where do you buy your pet food?

I have spent awhile thinking about where to get it. I met a woman at the pet store who says she only goes there for last minute items and she orders everything online. It got me thinking. Where do you various people buy your pet food?

When we were still researching food we went to the pet store a lot because they have the ingredients in various brands memorized and could really give us tips. They knew which brands did large breed puppy formulas and which didn't. For next month we're ordering everything we can from amazon because it's much cheaper.

I use to buy kibble online (super fast shipping great site)
Paws Choice | Natural Holistic Pet Food | Premium Pet Food | Natural Pet Treats

Then found this gem of a store in my area where I get my Bravo raw & kibble now...the owner is outstanding, very knowledgeable.

Also, a local butcher shop

I answered local pet store, but it's not really very local. We drive to a pet store in Buffalo, about an hour away. But it's privately owned, not a big chain store and it's geared toward the higher end foods, organic/natural treats, safe and good quality toys and beds and so on. The guys who own the store are fantastic, very friendly and down to earth. We go there a couple times a year and stock up on everything. The owners always see how much we are buying and throw in a bunch of freebies.

For part of their food, I buy meat at the grocery store. And we raise chickens so my dogs get lots of fresh eggs.
