Where's the Pink Foam Board!?

So I have a project this Halloween that involves using the Pink Foam Board to make ancient Mayan ruins but when I went to both Lowe's and Home Depot, neither of them had any!?!?!?
Does anyone know of where I can get some for a decent cost or is there a different way of creating the ruins? Help!! My hopes are dashed!! Help Please!!

I've run into this before at Lowes. No foam board on the sales floor for about a week. I finally asked an associate when they were getting more in because they had been out for a week. He said they had several hundred sheets behind the store in storage, they just hadn't restocked the shelf area because who needs 2" thick foam in July? So you might want to ask, if you didn't.
If you have the same luck as we do I SoCali you may not be able to buy the pink or blue foam board in your area, our climate is to mild for it. I had to get mine when we were on vacation in Tenessee and ship it home. Lowes said they would order it but I had to order a minimum of 200 I don't need that many tombstones.
I have only heard from my relatives up in Paradise near Chico, CA that there was some up there. There has not been any down here in socal either. We only have the white foam in my local neck of the woods...
Anyone have any other ideas on how I can create the Ruin Walls if I can't get a hold of the foam board?
If you really want the pink foam there are a couple of things you can try at the Depot. First and easiest is to go online, choose your local store and search on these skus 270895 and 270908. If the store you are logged into carries the product you will be able to view the product specs like this http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs...distance_1=50&distance_1=100&showStores=false. If that search is unsuccessful change your home store and try again. When (if) you find a store that has it but is too far away, go to your local Depot's PRO desk and ask if it can be filled using Central Fulfillment (an additional $80) but it would be delivered to your door. If Central Fulfillment is unavailable ask about a special order. I belive you can get them in half-pallet orders that would arrive with thier regular Corning fiberglass order. Good luck.
