Mr Lin,
There are many LHS that would carry GWS products, but have difficulty working through your distributor chain. Profit margins in this hobby are pretty thin, and some of the distributor/hobby shop "arrangements" simply make the GWS products unprofitable. It would be nice to see a GWS "package" offered to the LHS that would cover the needs of the hobbiest. It's great to be able to buy a kit, but what about spare props? Too often, they have the kit, but none of the backup parts that keep us flying. There is a reason so many of us buy over the internet. We can do a stock check sitting at our computer, order what is needed, and in most cases, have the items three days later. Contrast this with driving 20 miles to our nearest LHS only to find that he's "out" of anything we need! Obviously, there are exceptions, but it is too often the case. Sorry for the rambling, but there isn't a simple answer to your question.

JT
