Question Where to buy fan screw in Vancouver?

Currently bruoght 2 more fans for push pull on my H100i.
Need more sets of screws. 4mm x 35mm, 3mm x 35mm with washer & nuts .. etc.
But after googling around, in moddiy/frozencpu + shipping, they're expensive.
Could I get them in Home Depot? or those they carry are too big only for home renovation?
Anywhere I can buy fan screws locally?
Thank you in advance.

What i do, is use 2 screws per fan, that way you can run push pull without buying additional screws, it's completely secure.

Home Depot is where I've been able to find any size length of metal machine or self
tapping screws.

Or just get one of those screw sets with all the common ones that you use. Unfortunately, they do include AT related screws which are useless this day and age.
