Where Do You Go For An Alignment?

Just like the question asks... do you go to any specific shop, or take it to the dealer? I want to get a 4 wheel alignment done, so just feeling out my options if you can provide any experiences. I was thinking to take it to a regular auto place (Sears or Firestone complete care).

Thanks for the help!!

Proper alignment for BMW includes adding weight to the trunk and cabin. That said, I've had alignments done at tire stores with no ill effects: car drives fine and no abnormal tire wear whatsoever.
