Sometimes a house will be large enough that they can actually hold an inventory of corporate bonds themself -- they may have actually purchased them. But more often than not, you're going to buy corporate bonds on the open market. You can buy them at the initial offering for par for their stated value, or you can buy them as they're being traded. And corporate bonds are traded every day. So you can buy those, really, through any brokerage house that you have available to you, whether that be online or face-to-face, but there will be options for trading just in the fixed income market, which is...you know, which is part of bonds. So really, the answer to "Where can we buy corporate bonds?" is just about anywhere that you can do your normal stock trading. First of all, you have a lot of options these days. You have online brokerages where you don't have to work with a person in particular and you can do all the research on your own. A lot of those online houses also have offices where there'll be a customer service person available who can answer questions, and these are licensed people that are qualified to answer most of your questions that you'll have.
