Default Corks?

Does anyone know where i can get corks locally? Ive tried just about every store around here, even wineries with no luck. My homebrew shop wont be open for a few more hours, damnit i guess im not bottling today. Another quick question, will a cork in a wine bottle hold the carbonation of a cider, im thinking i should only use about half a cup of sugar to 5 gallons.

I would guess that you would need champagne bottles/corks with the cage to keep from popping the cork under carbonation.

I guess that depends on where you are. I get mine at Austin Home Brew and they've been open for an hour.
