Bicycle Accessories Questions

I have some questions: for bicycle accessories like mirrors, is it better to buy online?
Will Walmart/K-mart/Target contain only cheap and bad products?
Is it usually expensive to buy accessories from bike shops?

Thank you

the chains only carry the cheap bell/schwinn stuff. get the good stuff from your lbs or one of the many good online stores (IMHO)

Do you want to live in a town, a ghost downtown, with only big box chainstores in the suburbs.. ?

bike shops have services that dont fit in a box.
