Where in chicago is this sand stuff I am looking for?

I just picked up a consulting gig in Chicago and since Dallas has no Yard right or southdown or new castle I want to pick some up in Chicago and bring it back. The airlines will love checking a 50 pound bag of sand don't you think? Any help on where in Chicago would be great, unfortunately I am smack dab downtown.

I always take a single bag, so I thought I would take along an extra duffle and put a bag in it each time I go up so over the next couple months I could get quite a bit.
