$4.50/sq ft tile versus $2.00 sq ft tile

I went strolling for 3x6 subway tile today and compared three different stores, two local and Home Depot. The two locals were priced at $4.50 per sq ft while the Depot came in at about $2.00.

Why should I pay twice as much for basic 3x6 subway tile? Is there really a difference?

Apples to apples comparison? Warranty? Ratings?

Might even be the same tile, just the Home Depot can order in bulk which reduces cost.
