Masa is usually not found in the baking section of the market with most flours and sugars. It can be most often found in the ethnic foods section with other "Mexican" type foods. Perhaps you are just looking in the wrong section of the market.

Around here (where they do carry it) it is with the regular flour, not the ethnic section.

where abouts do you live. here in california it`s everywhere the flour, cornmeal, baking
powder,and yeast is stocked. it is like a fine corn flour, you can make tamales out of it.
also you can get masa for tamales at certain bakeries at this time of year already mixed
up for people who are going to make tamales.

Grocery retailers are sometimes hard to understand in their merchandising strategies. Some will main stream an item, in this case Masa Harina, and display it in the "baking" section along with other baking items. Others will choose to incorperate it into an ethnic specialty (Hispanic) section in the store. Both approaches work, depending on the market they are operating in. Then there are exceptions to every rule. One thing is for certain, you will find the product on the baking aisle or in an Hispanic (ethnic) section of the store....If they carry the product at all.
