If I can't find chestnuts, then what?

I've checked all over local stores for pre-roasted chestnuts, or really any chestnuts at all at this point. I have gotten quizzical looks and no answers. I know I can order chestnuts on Amazon but I'm lazy. I've never tried them before. Are other nuts fine to substitute (for a stuffing recipe), should I skip the nuts altogether or should I make a rush order from the Internet?
