I get individual ingredients for my PM batches with White Labs vials for around $25-$30. Grains milled in front of me in a grain bag and all. Obviously not an imperial IPA or anything, but for your typical ale or lager, my LHBS has great prices.
Also, I'm not sure what a ritebrew shill is, but I'm sure you're very far from it. Lol. I'm sure auto correct is the culprit for that one.
Edit: I must add that my LHBS owner is an 80 year old retired engineer who isn't concerned about making a ton of money. He's been brewing since the 60s and loves it. He told me his goal is to break even each month and to have something to do other than watch Fox News.
