I'd start out in the big box stores and work my way down to hardware stores. They will probably have to go look in the back, just get someone to do it. They certainly don't send them back at the end of the season, right??

Good hunting,

I was going to suggest ACE hardware.
ACE is a Weber distributor, and most stores carry a good selection all year round.

Order it off Amazon and have it get there the day before you get there. That would be the cheapest. Or Ace Hardware stores. You'll go right by one in Rochester on Highway 52. Take the 2nd st Exit.
