Where to buy Easter ham?

Hi Chowhounders - where do you get your ham? Do you special order from your local grocery store or somewhere else? I'd prefer a place in the NW suburbs (Acton/Concord/Westford area) but am open.

    I serve a very very large crowd for Easter so price is important. Don't laugh but if you are looking for a spiral, I have had good hams from Target for $2.88 pound. (Match's the one from Costco).

      Costco carries a great spiral cut ham.

          Personally I special order mine from the local specialty grocery store down here on the south shore. I understand you can do the same at WF and even stop and shop.
