Zojirushi Coffee Maker - Where to buy in Chicago?

Where can I buy a Zojirushi coffee maker in Chicago? I'd prefer to pick one up in person, as opposed to ordering online. The Zojirushi website is very helpful in pointing me towards a retailer.

I hate coffee but love Java Monster, what am I doing wrong

Are single serve coffee makers only good when used with disposable coffee cups?

I recently purchased a Keurig coffee maker from Costco with a load of coffee cups. They lasted a month or so and now I either have to shell out $$ for more of those cups or try normal coffee with their reusable cup. So far I don't have much success with the latter. Is it just me or the damn thing is not designed to be used with normal coffee?!
