I haven't had much luck at Great Big Greenhouse, or the big box stores. I know it's a little late in the season, but I'm trying to find a place with a good variety of climbers. Anybody have a favorite spot with helpfull staff?

Mail order, really.
Little Five Azaleas seems to have a pretty decent selection. They are on Rt 1 by Virginia Center Commons.
But really, coming from someone who has a lot of roses - mail order is the best for selection, price, customer service, etc. People around here direct you to Europeana when you ask for old roses.
Ashdown Roses is having a 1/2 off sale right now.

Thanks myloki, I was beginning to figure as much. I had seen the Ashdown Roses sale and was getting tempted, but the shipping is pretty expensive because they're selling potted plants. But, I may go ahead and get some anyway, they seem like they have some nice plants. Thanks for your help.
