Default Best Source for Mats?

Does anybody have any recommendations for where to buy flooring? The best I found online is http://www.greatmats.com. I haven't had much luck finding local suppliers or used ones for sale.

Thanks for the help.

What are the mats specifically for? If it is martial arts I would check with any of the upcoming tournaments in your area. A lot of the tourneys will sell the mats afterwards. You have to pick them up that day but can get a decent deal.

I bought 6 crash pads 5 X 7 from a local gymnastics studio. Don't know if either of those ideas help.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. This is for my home gym, not for grappling.

Your local feed store should be able to order 4x6' rubber horse stall mats. I know tractor supply has 1/2" in stock but for the 3/4" we had to go though a local supplier.
