I am impressed with Green's Camera World's competitive prices considering they are a locally owned business. I recently went into the Salinas store and purchased a Casio G1 at the same advertised price at Costco. I received a great tutorial on the spot on how to use my camera and was offered to attend a free upcoming Casio class to learn more about using my camera. As far as I know no other camera business offers free classes. Support your local businesses!

I hate to do this a local business, but I have no choice. I went there today to look for a camera with my wife, the employee was excellent but when he quoted me he quoted me $229.00 for a Nikon Coolpix P100 and I fell in love with the camera and the price ( I had no idea about the model or price before hand) so I came home to get the money.
Looking for reviews online I found out the price is $399.00 which is more than I wanted to spend.
My complaint is I expect issues like this one with big retailers like Best Buy and the only reason I choose to buy local is to avoid them because now, the whole buying experience is being ruined for me.

Normally, I love supporting the local mom and pop establishments, but Green's Camera World has gone down the hole since either the ownership or the management has changed within the last two years.

I have received sarcastic comments on both the occasions I made the trip to the store (I browsed the first time and bought lens cleaning fluid, which was reciprocated by a sarcastic "big spender huh" comment from the young man working the counter) and received ridiculous offers to purchase some of my equipment, which I had no intention of selling in the first place (an older man at the counter offered me seven hundred dollars for my canon 85mm f/1.2 mk II).

I suggest heading over to Monterey for friendlier service and for larger purchases, (I hate to support the big man, but in this case, I have to) sticking to B&H or Adorama on-line, which have superb customer service and great policies.
