Okay, just to state the obvious to make sure we are using the same terms:
Calamari IS squid - the name is Italian and the name is used with variations in spelling throughout the Mediterranean region. In Japanese it is Ika.
Sushi is a style of preparation of a dish - with recipe variations which may or may not include raw seafood.
be able to get the already cleaned and frozen whole squid body tubes and tenticles (they come as seperate items) from your Wal-Mart Supercenter. Not all stores carry the same things "in store" - and if they can order them for you will depend on what is available from their warehouse. If you don't find them either in the "thawed" seafood case or the frozen section - ask the manager of the meat/seafood department if they can order them for you.
As Gretchen and Andy M. noted - any other store with a seafood counter should also be able to help you.
