I just bought a 4 L jug of Mona Lisa brand (OMS) a couple of weeks ago at Michael's. I'm in Canada but surely they stock similarly. I found it at floor level in the art supplies section. I also saw other much smaller volumes of a different brand at a hugely inflated price. The Mona Lisa works just fine. I'm just getting into using OMS but have two friends to share with. It really is odourless. (to me anyway)
Location: Currently upstate New York - it could change...

Supposedly the "fine art" OMS is more "refined" than the hardware one, but I haven't noticed ANY difference between them when I use them. I've also used baby oil and Goo Gone with good results. (The baby oil actually worked better with Crayola colored pencils than the OMS did, although the OMS worked better with my Prismacolors). I also use Swisspers cosmetic applicators because I think the paper stumps are a pain in the backside...
Within you there is a solitude and peace to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself...
