    Where to buy an optima battery locally?

    I went to checker/autozone and they don't seem to carry optima batteries. Where else can I buy one, besides online (I don't want to pay shipping).

    I'm in Denver, CO btw...

    go check their website and use dealer locator. if there is advance auto parts there, they should carry it.

    Re: Where to buy an optima battery locally?

    go to costco, they have em there. and for battery size, optima won't show what will actually fit. it said it didn't have a battery for my car also, but a D34 fit just fine.

    It doesnt show up cuz technically that car is a group 35 battery and Optima doesnt come in group 35.

    I got my yellowtop from a friend for $50 but I suggest the nice people that post classified.. Most will be in great condition for cheaper than a brand new one

    So which battery should I search for at Costco? It has to fit in my battery tray with the right terminals...
