Taking online prices to brick and mortar shop

I'm interested in knowing your thoughts on a consumer who is buying a big ticket item (e.g., a boat, an engagement ring, a home theater system), and first does research online to come up with a model and price, and then takes that information to a local, independent store to ask them if they would like to match that.

Is this appropriate? I'm going to be purchasing something soon, and I'd like to do this. On one hand, I know I can find a good price and product online, but on the other hand, I would like to support a local business.

I'm worried this might come off as rude, though, or appear like a cheapskate or too demanding.
