When you can order something and get it the next day, everything is basically "local." Most of the online stores AHS, Midwest, etc. have brick and mortar stores, as well. They all need support, too.
My LHBS sponsors my homebrew club, so I buy from them when I can, but their hours are almost never convenient for me, and their prices are too high to do mail order from them. I typically end up buying heavy/bulky stuff like grain from the LHBS, and get yeast and hops online.
