Idler pulley bearing gone bad

Hey y'all,
Last night I heard horrible screaching noises under the hood. I was close to home and was able to limp it there.
My idler pulley (I don't have power steering) was hanging loose on the bolt. The bolt was still tight. I took it off and noticed the bearing had exploded or something.

Q: Is this something I can get at a NAPA, or should I just go to a bearing store and try to get a new bearing for it?

The pulley looks like it's still okay, so I'm thinking just the bearing needs replaced.

Thanks!

Thanks for the replies. I got a bearing at NAPA. It just took a few minutes to bang out what was left of the old one, install the new bearing and put it back in place.
