Answer: 
They should be able to. Or you can order online and get free pickup at your store. Ordering the factory spools saves the effort and problems that come with rewinding if it isn't done just right. Other wise get the universal Rhino brand Trimmer line 0.085" 1.65mm

HD sells universal String Trimmer line Rhino brand 0.65" (1.65mm) "round" for about $7? It take some skill and patients to rewind but I find it works perfect.

Grasshog 6 Amp Straight Shaft 14 in. Dual-Line Trimmer/Edger is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 132.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine I got this used about 2 years ago. It worked fine until a neighbor borrowed it and scalped his lawn which used up all the string on the spool. I rewound the spool several times with a thicker line that I had sitting around. I wound just one line instead of two because the thicker line takes more power from the motor. The landlord next door pays me to maintain the property. To get the job done I wound a single string backwards on the spool - the opposite direction of the arrow. This prevented all the string from feeding out and getting chopped into pieces in the process. The downside is that I had to take the spool off an manually feed it. But since the area wasn't very large I got it done with two manual feeds. Finally, I bought the blue Rhino brand universal ROUND (not serrated) line of the correct dimension 0.065" (1.65mm) and I downloaded the manual and followed the directions to rewind the spool. I discovered that it is designed to feed properly with the assumption that two lines are loaded on to the spool. I tested it a little while ago and it is back to working and feeding perfectly. While I made it work with much thicker line - the thinner line cuts better and because it is isn't any more expensive than the larger sizes why not use the correct string. After each trimming I use compressed air to blow out the motor and keep grass from building up. So despite all the bashing of other reviews it works fine and I much prefer this to a gas powered one where fuel goes bad and you need to mix oil and gas. For small yards go electric. For big yards or farms or landscapers or heavy brush gas is the only way to go.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst weedeater I ever owned Auto line feeder malfunction. Used this product about 15 times before it crapped out. Can't take back to Home depot because they got smart and discontinued the product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from spool replacement $$$$ This product is terrible. I can't see how anyone could say this is a quality product. The auto-feed feature doesn't work. Anytime the string hits something like a wooden fence or curbing it breaks then it either doesn't feed or it sends out way to much and then snaps off in the spool. The actual spool breaks quite often so the little plastic pieces that are suppose to hold the line break or bend so badly they don't work anymore. After that happens it doesn't matter how much string is left you can't use it. Also the replacement spools are $8 dollars. I didn't realize when I bought this that you can't buy string and spool it, you have to buy the special auto-feed spool. I have only used this five times, I have probably trimmed a total of 50ft linear of grass, I have used 3 replacement spools.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from piece of junk cannot believe i was stupid enough to buy my 3rd one of these. This one just died this morning after less than a year. at one time all I would buy is b&d products but they are all cheap junk now. going to buy another brand and never buy b&d again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POOR CHOICE, STAY AWAY! I've used grass trimmers from B&D for years. My last one gave up the ghost so choosing another B&D product was a no brainer...right? This is the worst trimmer I've ever owned, and I go back to when you had to hit the ground to release more cutting string. A fully wound spool runs out seemingly in minutes (I haven't a clue where it goes). Turning the head required a twist and a turn rather than a simple button and turn. Not a big deal but it just adds to the overall aggravation. Another problem is aligning the cutting with the grass edge. I don't know why but the cut is uneven and difficult to control. Sometime no cutting, then without warning it cuts a big divot. Does make for a nice trim at all. Not sure if I will be able to return it but I certainly will try. Would I purchase another B&D trimmer? Certainly, just not this model. Stay away from this model.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good trimmer *if* you know you must... ... do some specific things: I say that because the Black & Decker auto feed is terrible. The Black & Decker auto feed is extremely unforgiving to hand wound spools. You must wind the line onto the spool *perfectly* as if a machine did it. Look at the spool that comes with the trimmer to see what properly wound line should look like. If you overlap the line even once the line will either not feed or it will shoot out everywhere. You *must* use round non-serrated .065" trimmer line. Only fill the spool about 1/2 to 3/4 of the depth, do not try to wind as much line onto the spool as possible. You must also soak the bottom of the spool and inside of the orange spool cover in WD40 or some such lubricant, all of the contact surfaces must be kept perfectly clean and smooth. When you mount the spool lines into the spool head you *must* keep the line snug, do not let the spool line unroll even the least bit. If it does unroll even the least bit you must make sure it goes back to being *perfectly* machine wound. You must also assure that once you have the line in and the spool mounted that the line is not bending upward (not up toward the inside of the sheath) but instead bending straight out to the sides or down to the grass. It takes some practice to learn how to wind the spools by hand and sometimes I still have to take the spool cover off because the line gets stuck and doesn't feed. If you can put up with learning this stuff this is an otherwise great electric trimmer that can handle some really thick grass. I even used it to cut some overgrown bushes and 1" thick vines growing up a tree. If B&D would make a manual feed version of this they would have a five star electric trimmer. I'm sure B&D is more interested in selling replacement spools, sort of like inkjet printers and printer ink.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I Can't Believe Anyone Has A Positive Review Of This Product DON'T BUY THIS TRIMMER! Yes, this trimmer is easy to assemble and use but Black & Decker really dropped the ball. We bought one last September and only used it a couple times for some light trimming. When I used it today on some heavier work it constanly jammed and coninusouly fed new line whether I needed it or not. It stopped working so I grabbed the box and receipt and took it back for a replacement. I got a new one and I'm taking it back tomorrow!!!!! I needed a pair of shears just to continuosly cut the non-stop waste of line that comes out and tangles. I only used a couple feet of line but the rest of the expensive spool was wasted. I barely got a quarter of the area I was working on trimmed. This trimmer really stinks!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk! Don't waste your money! Auto-feed is a myth. The line jams constantly, forcing you to stop work, pull the thing apart, reset the string ... and you're good for about four feet of cutting until the line jams. Then you stop, pull the thing apart and repeat as above. At first I thought I was using line that was too thick but after trying different diameters I have concluded that this is a poorly designed hunk of junk. In addition, during it's brief periods of actual operation it is noisy and does a lousy job. Because of it's design it doesn't close enough to walls, stone fences and other objects to do a satisfactory trim.
