Game stores are stores. When players go there every week, play a few games, are there for hours using terrain and tables that they paid for, then don't buy anything, yeah, that sucks. Of course they'd incentivize buying things at their store. Besides; if you're worried about a single reroll or 50 points worth of models then you're doing it wrong.
Also; the LGSs around me are the only place I can get any real gaming in. Who is going to fit 1 6'x4' table in an apartment or such, let alone multiple tables? That takes up a lot of room, so yeah, while it would be cheaper to buy models from spikeybits or easier to buy direct from gw, I'd rather pay the extra 20% or wait the extra week than not have a place to play, or at least not have a place to meet new players and be able to have multiple games going at once.
