Where I live there is a bolt shop....really. If you can, find such a shop, and take your other bolt with you and 'match 'em up'.
Another possibility is that Lowe's carries speciality bolts. They're in cabinets/drawers in the hardware section, not hanging on the wall. H/Depot probably has a similar arrangement.
Yet another possibility (and I think it's your best shot) is that, if you can match just the threads, you can buy a piece of all-thread (it's just a piece of steel rod, with the threads running the full length of the rod). Thread your nut onto the all-thread just past where you are going to make your cut, and cut with a hack saw. (You run the nut down on the rod so that, after you make your cut, you unscrew the nut over your fresh cut to straighten out the threads deformed by cutting). Total cost for all-thread and nuts......around $5. Use your existing bolt as a pattern for the new bolt, and leave evough extra to accomidate the nut that you'll add in place of the head of the old bolt. Anyone working in any hardware department anywhere on the planet worth their salt can help you.
Best regards, --W/D--
