I'd check with the R.I. Aquarium Society. Also, I've seen them on occasion at Rumford Pets (Swansea, MA, just N-NE of Providence). I've also seen them recently at Uncle Ned's Fish Factory in Millis, MA, but that's a LONG way from Fall River. They have a forum where you could ask about availability.
If you're planning to go to the Pioneer Valley Aquarium Society Auction on March 5th, there is a good chance there will be some there, but not guaranteed.
Really, the RI Aquarium Society would be the place to put an inquiry if you want to pick up locally.
I've had them shipped, and they travel quite well. They travel best in Cool weather - not single-digit frigid (like the forecast calls for in the next week or two) but 40's is OK, (spring/fall 50's and low 60's is ideal) and better than 80's or 90's during the summer. You might watch the "For Sale / Trade" forum here on APC, or check out Aquabid (Aquabid dot com) and go to the Invertebrates page.
Hope this helps!
