    But do they have the larger widths and roll lengths?
    Amazon has always been the cheapest IME.

    They have quite a large selection.
    From 3x5 to (I believe) 15x6 or something like that. Some really large size.
    They have 1", 1/2", and 1/4"

    Have never seen, or heard of, 4' x 50' HC in any big box or farm store.
    They can order it, but shipping is a killer.

    Have you compared that price to amazon?
    Anything labeled 'chicken' usually cost more.
