My son is doing a science project & needs a large u shaped magnet to do the experiment. Anyone know where I can get one in/around Chapel Hill, Durham, even Wake co?

I did a search on google but it just gives me magnet schools.

Thank you for your reply.

I called both, the 1st is disconnected & the 2nd does not have them. I was thinking about the Planetarium but its close for refurb. Also called the store at the Science museum in Durham but no luck.....we should have grown seeds!

Yes, them. According to their web site they at least have one as part of the "My First Magnets" kit. Welcome

Edited ... Stone's is a good suggestion too. And their web site says they have it: http://catalog.stones-education.com/...t-p-48669.html

Stone's is called Stones Educational Superstore now I guess.

They have a huge one on the website but you will have to call to see what is in stock.

You have to type in horseshoe magnets. That will yield a lot of results.
