You know, I'm an idiot. I've lived a few blocks from the north side location (in Chicago) of Merz Apothecary for 7 years. Went in there maybe once when I first moved in, just to look around. So now I'm on this forum, and I keep seeing references to Merz in Chicago, and I'm thinking, "Isn't that apothecary down the street a Merz? It couldn't be!" It is. I went in, and was just blown away. Now I have an actual store that I can actually go in to buy all manner of shaving stuffs.
This does not bode well for my wallet.
