Where can I buy a powerful (60-75 pint) dehumidifier in the Bay Area today
? I'm willing to buy it online and pick it up in the store, or just go directly to the store, but I'm trying to find a way to avoid spending all afternoon driving from store to store. Is there a specialty shop? Have you had any luck with "buy online - pick up in store today" options at Home Depot, Lowe's, Ace, Target, etc.? Is there a website that compiles local inventory for things like this?

I can't believe I'm wasting a question on this, but after trying to navigate numerous stores' online interfaces and phone trees, I turn to you.
The question above the fold is basically it -- I'm seeking to pick up a powerful dehumidifier in the Bay Area today. Any ideas? I had a leak, and I think I've stopped the source of water, but I need to get everything to dry out ASAP.
The Emeryville big box stores (Home Depot, Best Buy, Target) are the most convenient location to me, but none seem to have anything in stock that would work. I spent awhile deciding between the dehumidifiers on Home Depot's website that were tagged with "buy online and pick up in store today!" but the one I picked was neither available online nor at any store within 50 miles. (It wouldn't even let me check out.)
If someone wants to tell me that I can get by with a less powerful dehumidifier, I'll listen, but I want to dry out the plywood surrounding a 300sf area as soon as possible, and in looking at prices, less powerful machines seem to be half as good for 90% of the price.
