First off, I AM sponsored by SCS and have ordered from all stores apart from CubeDepot, but I do think SCS is the best company. I live in the UK, so the shipping is quite expensive, however it takes less than a week to arrive from the order date, not the shipping date. Also, it provides a wide range of products i.e. Stickers, Clothing, Lube, Cosmic Cubes and Hardware, all of which I believe are at a very competitive price. Finally, the customer service leaves nothing to be desired, fast, polite replies that are informative and answer your question.

I love cubicle for their community involvement (social media and YouTube, since I'm too far away from New York to be directly involved). I have also become a fan of most of their staff members, and their stickers and lubes are so nice. They have also helped innovate, and progress the hardware along.

Yeah, they're more expensive but they also ship a LOT faster.
I originally thought this as well, but having ordered from both speed cube shop (only once though) and MCM twice, all 3 orders arrived within a week of order date. My first MCM order only took 5 days to reach me from my order, not shipping date :)

I live in the UK so might be a different for US people.

I know that most people chose a more major store like the cubicle or SCS, but I am from Canada, so I think Cancube is the best for me, because they have lower prices, and lots of incentives for buying there, and since I live in the same province, it only takes 2 days to get here. I would choose thecubicle, if cancube didn't stock on a puzzle that I was looking for.

Perhaps. I haven't used MCM but will try them. Lightake took 10 days to ship my most recent order. That's terrible, IMHO.

I completely agree with you. I think that the cubicle is the absolute best cube store. In fact I put in an order today. I am trying out lubicle silk for the first time.

For me lightake. Low prices, but there are others with those too. The most important - affordable DHL express prices. I always choose express and it is about 9$, but if I order more cubes at once it is reasonable. I always get them in max 4 working days from China.
