I'm not surprised - all I ever see is apple/mystery snails in shops as well.
I had to order my nerite off Ebay

I got him some sinking algae wafers. Hope that's good enough.

make sure to keep an eye on him and his eating habbits, if you have live plants and he doesn't get enough food on a daily basic he will much on the live plants. My mystery snail is a little pig, eats a leaf of spinach about every two days. One snail and it takes him only two days to woof it all down o.o

He doesn't seem to be eating much. The algae wafer I put in there 2 days ago is still there. He's just clung to the glass roaming around. There isn't any algae on the glass that I can see.
