    Does anyone know if any of the larger chain stores sell DE locally?

    I need to buy more of this product, but just can't justify paying $36 shipping when the product only costs $33 for 50#

    Where are you located?

    We get our 50# bags of food grade DE through a Custom Milling dealer for $20.00.

    My experience has been that the chain stores don't carry the food-grade DE that you want. You might have better luck looking for a store that specializes in organic gardening. Good luck.
