You forgot that these very store owners were cheating people and govt of money for past 60-70 years by charging full MRP on items and not paying taxes fully. All the MNC's are wolves in another wolves territory. There are no hens here. If there were hens they would have closed their business without making such a fuss. They were losing their margins to online sellers who gave better quality stuff. Now you are left only with road side type useless quality products sold in shops at prices that don't make sense. Don't get anything in your locality because the nearby shops don't know or don't stock them? Bad luck. Suck it up now and compromise with the lowest common denominator type of goods which have higher margin than real quality goods.
