Amano substrates, where nr. Chicago?

Where is the closest place to Chicago that has the ADA line of substrates for sale?
Shipping that stuff is very costly.
Thanks in advance, Bill

Shipping is about the only way. AFA in San Fran is where I usually order from and the more you order the better shipping works out. Could always see about getting a few people lined up and make it a group order then split shipping around.

Thanks for the input. I am new to all this having been away from the hobby for years.
It would be neat if there could be some centralized meeting of a Midwestern group, just a meet, eat and chat for the evening. Overnight at a motel, breakfast and head home. Your thoughts?

Good News. has ADA amazonia back in stock! Grab it while you still can. The shipping's going to be a bit cheaper compared to AFA because its from TX.
