Hey, do you guys actually call every Home Depot looking for Southdown?! I need at least three 50 pound bags for my new tank and refugium. I'm actually in Pleasant Prairie, WI. right over the border. If any of you know any Home Depots that have any now it would be greatly appreciated, and yes I am willing to go for an extended drive Guess I should start calling around

I stay in Crystal Lake, IL. I need some southdown as well. My local Home Depot is not helpful and they are not even willing to help me ask where other Home depot has southdown.

Boxster, I have 4 bags and I've realized I only need 3. So, I have 1 extra already. I'll call the stores and see who has more. How many bags do you need? The 50lbs bags I bought were $6.99 each so whatever you feel is a fair price since I'll actually deliver them when I get the chance.
