how do you know people don't call

Local shops for advice? Maybe they do both - call local shops and ask other paddlers.
I think part of the answer to your question is that new paddlers have little knowledge of their own to go on. That includes little knowledge of local shops and their employees, and how valid and trustworthy their opinions are. I've gotten the hard sell from a local shop before, and I had enough experience to recognize it.
A variety of opinions never hurt anyone.
