Default Where to buy a good quality plywood near Milwaukee WI metro area

(If anyone already asked same question, please direct me to the link and delete this post.)

As the title question, I'm just entering the woodworking world for a short time. All my current projects are using plywood from box stores, orange and green ones. I found some 1/2" birch plywood at Menards as handi-board, 2'x2'. It's pretty good, 11 layers. But now I need some 3/4", 4'x4', birch plywood, I couldn't found the same type at there anymore. I also tried HD, but no luck. Rockler and Woodcraft don't have that large size, I just checked website.

Can anyone recommands some store or lumber yards? Thanks!

Thanks for reply. I called Metro Hardwoods branch in Jackson, WI. They only do whole sale, not for retail.

Bo,
An in town option might be Bliffert Lumber.com. It's been nearly 11 years since we left Cedarburg so I'm struggling to recall all my trusted suppliers. Anywhere you can get
Columbia Forest Products is favored as long as the prices are reasonable.
