Default What does your LHBS charge for bulk grain sacks?

Just curious to see what everyone's LHBS is charging. I am about to get into all grain and was pleasantly surprised when I found out that 2-row was $45 for a 50# sack at my LHBS (Falls Church, VA). Checked out some other stores and was seeing prices close to $60. What do you all pay for base malt sacks?

Note: not interested in shipped costs or group buy prices. Brick and mortar only

I will add that I called a store in Newark, DE where my friend goes to school, seeing if maybe I could save by having him transport it to me. They were 59.99 for Rahr 2-row... maybe I need to move to oregon!

$35 from Northern Brewer. But I only get it when I have other business in Milwaukee or a friend is coming from there. Here I dont even want to know what they charge.

$27 or so for 2 row, $35 for anything else.

I'm only about 30 minutes from MidCountry Malt though. The real LHBS around me are charging 45 for Canadian 2 Row, and 65 -70 for anything else.
