Binoculars: Where to buy in St. Louis?

My binoculars broke recently, so I'm looking for a new pair, however, I would like to buy them somewhere where I can actually test them. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Try purchasing online, I always do now. Usually it is cheaper and you have the option of sending them back if they are not good.... Places such as Eagle Optics, Opticsplanet, B and H...etc...all great spots. Better yet if you can go there first and try out the products as they usually have a complete lineup in stock....

Thanks for the advice, I was thinking about going there. It would be great to see a Western Kingbird, but I must have missed with my pin, since Hazelwood is about 20 minutes away from me! By the way, you've got some nice pictures on your site.
