Navigator, here is the current gear store listing from the Florida
Backpacker's Trailplace created by folks on his list.  Hopefully you will be
able to find something near your area.

Here's the list:

Store Name: East Coast Outdoors, Inc.

East Coast Outdoors is located just a couple of miles north of Daytona Beach
right on US 1. It is one of those rare places where the staff knows how to
properly fit a backpack (and will do so for you), where people know and
understand the Florida Trail, and where everything from Sage shirts to
various forms of tent stakes are available under one roof. In addition to
trail-related gear, they have a good supply of skiing, canoeing, kayaking,
and other gear. In short, as impressive an array of gear and skilled staff
as any outfitters anywhere, and better than most.

Directions: Take I-275 south to exit 15, then west to U.S. 19, then north
1.5 miles. There is a large sign by the road, but you can't see the building
until you enter the property. It is sort of hidden in the woods. If you go
past 49th street, you have gone too far. It is the last thing on the east
side of U.S. 19 BEFORE the exit ramp to 49th Street. Camping, backpacking
supplies, boots, clothing, freeze dried foodstuffs, etc. It is fun to visit
and wander around the store. They have a very large inventory. - Carl
