The McMaster parts are sold in packs of 100 only (not that five bucks
and change isn't something worth spending on for shop parts!)
Another vendor I have been happy with is Fastenal (fasten-all)
They have 1" Nylon 6*32 machine screws for four cents in single
Regardless, Lowe's is good for emergency -- gotta have it -- situations
and for some of their loss-leaders but they are usually more $$$ than
Home Depot and waay more $$$ than true industrial suppliers like
McMaster, Grainger or Fastenal.
Fastenal has a lot of stores around the world - here is their search
page for ones in your area:
