If you can wait a day or 2 for shipping, try DIGIKEY.com.  They'll have it.

Hobie's right.  These days there's mostly only radio schlock, and they don't carry much of anything serious.  No-one does anymore because electronic components have gotten too varied and specialized for local stores to carry anything of substance.
Digikey is the quickest, always has stock of almost everything, and postal priority will get it to you in a couple of days inexpensively.

http://www.meritelectronics.com/ is Ft Myers based, and claims to carry that part. I don't know if you can take personal delivery at their address, but you can always call and ask! Contact info is on the site.

I'm so old, I remember when Radio Shack had parts for radios, and when their staff knew the difference between resistors and capacitors.

But I also remember when MTV played music videos and VH1 played "video hits."

I'm not that old and even I remember when Radio Shack had a whole slew of electronics parts in the back of the store.  Now they have a cabinet with drawers full of parts if you are lucky.

I quit dealing with Radio Shack when they started dealing heavily in cellular phones.  The store in Downtown Minneapolis had huge lines to check out and 95% of the customers were buying cell phones or prepaid cards to refill their phones.

We still have one independent electronics store here in Minneapolis, but I have no idea how many electronics parts they carry anymore since they moved to the suburbs at least four or five years ago.
