It _seems_ that they also have the other bits needed.

The drawback to doing that is to have to partially unpack and repack in the parking lot to get everything situated.
The sales tax difference isn't much for Washoe County. It is 7.725% in Reno compared to nearly 9% in most California cities.

I would hate to count on buying certain things in Reno (or surrounding area) and finding out that everywhere is out of stock.
