Default West Coast parts stores

I've not been out on the west coast very long so I'm not sure what parts stores actually carry good quality parts around here, since I'm used to ricezone, advance auto, and napa, and all we have here is Kragen. Should I go with kragen parts or should I order online from rockauto?

I always order from Rock Auto first. NAPA second (locally). NAPA has the best quality rebuilds on the market.

Isn't Kragen owned by Advance?

I have no clue about kragen, the only thing I've ever bought there was a pack of stem caps and an air freshener. I'll probably end up ordering from rock auto, since there isn't a napa around here.

I know CSK is nationwide, but there aren't many in PA/OH, so I've never shopped at one till I moved to CA.

I go to a Kragen store here in Sacramento that will price match off the web. Some do some don't. If you find a store that will it can save you quite a bit of money.
