Fitness equipment stores (non-Amazon)
I am trying to stay away from Amazon but I am having trouble finding deadlift straps. I've checked the play it again nearby and fitness depot.

No idea how much you're lifting, but most people lifting recreationally would be better off not using straps. Using straps takes away an opportunity to improve your grip strength. So instead of training your grip to be stronger, you're making your lift easier to hold.
The argument is often that people don't want to limit the amount that they're deadlifting, but healthy adult males shouldn't have much trouble holding developing the strength holding onto 300 lbs double overhand, or 400 lbs mixed grip.
Here's video of me doing 345 lbs DO, almost getting 355, and getting 375 with a mixed grip:

Open hand grip (climbing) is different from support grip (deadlift).
