Where can I buy a large piece of plexiglass for a frame?

- I'm framing a tall map: 30x48"
- I purchased a frame online and want to include either glass or plexi.
- A local framing shop will sell me a cut piece of glass at that size for $30 (yay!).
- The online frame store cautioned me that glass at that size would be heavy and push the bottom out of my frame. They said plexi would be best.
- Ordering it online is not ideal due to the oversize shipping cost.
- I looked at homedepot.com and their offerings appear to be > $100. (I think that is a little nuts for a piece of plastic.)
- this is in NYC
So: do you know where I can find an affordable piece of plexiglass at that size? Or should I stick with the glass and do my best to reinforce the frame bottom with brackets?
Thanks for your help-
