Bob's Red Mill in bulk?

We are granola making fiends and use Bob's Red Mill oats. We usually buy 2 lb bags. I looked into buying the 25lb bags direct from uh, Bob, but shipping ain't cheap. Any idea if I can get big bags in the outer boroughs?
Lots of supermarkets carry items from Bob's Red Mill. Just off the top of my head, in Ridgewood (my neighborhood) Key Foods on Myrtle Ave, and Price Choice Foods on Fresh Pond Road.
But the best prices are IMO when buying mail order. I like the website Netrition.com (apologies if this is forbidden) they are cheaper than retail, and shipping is 4.95 via UPS no matter how heavy your order is. If I order online in the morning, it gets shipped same-day, and delivered next-day (they are located in NY state).
I'm sure there are other websites selling 'health food' that also have good prices, so feel free to compare. I have had good experiences with Netrition, especially because of their flat rate shipping. And they carry a lot of different items, including what appears to be the full line of Bob's Red Mill.
Hi, thanks for the info. I would prefer to find a retail store where I could buy in bulk, but I guess that's just not something Bob's does.
Anyway it is certainly helpful to know about the low shipping cost on that site--sometimes there are things that you just have to order online, and it makes sense to do a one big order.
