Splitshot,

The truth is that all of the fly shops in western and sourth western Montana have a lot of hoppers of many different patterns in stock (this is based on the 12 years I lived in Montana). No fly shop has a monopoly on hoppers, they all have them. Hoppers along with a tan elk hair caddis, Trico, PMD, and black stonefly nymph is a staple of Montana fishermen in the July-mid-September time period. Just go into any fly shop and you will see a plethora of hoppers for sale.
