Looking for cheap substrate in NJ

Does anyone know any local dealers for Turface Pro Leage (gray) or Soilmaster select (gray colored too)? Both are soil conditioners used mainly for baseball fields and the like. Im looking to tear down and change the substrates on multiple tanks so the affordability of these products would be a boon.

I purchase a 50lb bag of Charcoal soilmaster select from Lesco. I bought it online, and said I'd pick it up at my local retailer. It took them a while (4 weeks to get 1 bag in) but $16.00 later, I had my 50lb. bag.

My local one was:
Lesco Store #606
1165 Globe Ave
Mountainside, NJ 07092-2903
Contact: Philip Giardina - 908-317-0509

There are about 10 retail locations around NJ...and more in surrounding States...mine wound up being shipped from Massachusetts! (but since I ordered online and said pickup, no shipping fees )

There is also a hydroponics store in Woodbridge.

And two other hydroponics stores...
