Drifters, Seven Summits and Camp and Climb all stock screws, if not the Black Diamond distributor has stock and could get it to them well within your time period

Most gear shops in Swizzy will stock them, probably cost you less than SA. Several gear shops in Grindelwald.

If you are doing glacial approaches they are useful (make sure you are down with your crevasse rescue techniques), but if you are doing easier peaks you would probably get by without.
