You can pick them up at a local store (they show available inventory) or get free shipping with orders of $45+. Both average 4.6 out of 5 with 150+ customer reviews for each.
Speaking of Home Depot, they are offering 24pks of Rayovac AA single use batteries for $4. Availability varies by store and zipcode, it looks like smaller cities and places with lower population densities may still have some available. I obviously can’t check every state/zipcode combination so this is a big YMMV.
