LFS recommendations for 180+ gallon delivery in NWI/South Suburbs

This is a long shot, but I'm planning on getting a 180 or 220 gallon tank setup sometime this summer.

The Ark in Merrillville, IN recently had an Aqueon with stand for $995. I was tempted, but last weekend they had a sign on it that it was held for someone. I've been trolling Craigslist, but haven't seen anything compelling.

I'm willing to pay for new, but more importantly, I'm willing to pay for delivery into a basement.

I'm in Dyer (IL/IN border at route 30). Anyone have experience with any LFS that will deliver a large tank? The Ark and nearby chain pet stores are the only places I've visited.

Barring specific recommendations, any advice on negotiating the purchase and delivery of a large tank is welcome.
