Never really thought of it that way.  I guess that's why Abingdon Spares

I still go directly to Moss from time-to-time, given that the Dover NJ 
facility is only about 45 minutes away over some beautiful twisty back roads. 
 "Honey, gotta run to Moss for a new map light bulb!"  ...vroom...  "Be back

Just don't tell her they're closed on Sunday ;-)
