Store availability of this tile

I have been waiting for this tile to become available on line as it is not carried in the store nearest to me. It has been six months and still has not been available. Is there anyway to easily find out what stores might currently have some of this in stock so that I might travel there and purchase some. Thank you.
Asked by: Kathy
I looked in person at my local Home Depot and had them check their inventory. They said it was available only online.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broken tiles unusable I wrote one very carefully worded review, which was not allowed. I'll try again, since I keep getting email reminders. These tiles came chipped. About 75% of them had gouges and cracks. I don't know the cause, but they were unusable for the most part. I would not buy these tiles unless I were able to examine each one in person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I used this tile on my entertainment level as an accent for one of the food kiosks. It was beautiful! Deep color and uniform size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great "Retro" Look We have not been able to install yet, but it looks as we expected. However, I recommend ordering a few extras as some squares came a little chipped.
