Default Poblano chilis

I live in a fair sized city but cannot seem to find Poblano peppers.
Does anyone have any ideas? Can you buy canned ones?

See if they have Pasilla chili. I think it's about the same thing. Here
is what they look like. They are the same size as a green bell pepper
but pointed at the end. http://users.visi.net/~mandy/pepguide.html#guide

My mistake... Pasilla is not the same thing. Pasilla is smoked. I do
think there is another common name for the poblano though. Someone else
may know what it is.

Have you tried typing in any of the following key words in a Google search

along with your zip code to see where they could be found?
"chile" and your zip
"Mexican food" and your zip
"poblano" and your zip
"tacos" and your zip - anybody making tacos would know where to buy chile
ancho, pasilla, poblano and the final meal "Chile Relleno"

I don't know where you live but it must be somewhere way up north. I live
in Texas and you can find poblanos just about anywhere.

The nearest thing to a poblano chile is an Anaheim, sometimes called a
California.

An ancho is a ripened and dried poblano, but it is not a substitute.

A pasilla is not a substitute for a poblano, but it is a good
substitute for an ancho. In fact they are often used interchangeably.

Unfortunately, several SoCal supermarkets do have fresh poblano chiles
labeled as pasillas, which serves to confuse unknowing customers. I
have brought this to their attention, to no avail. Oh well.
