Go to another parts store. A real parts store, like NAPA, BUMPER TO BUMPER, or FEDERATED.

I've never had a problem ordering brake shoes for these Corollas. We order from a company called Worlpac which are very big but only in certain parts of the country, I enclose a link for Rock Auto they ship parts at pretty good prices/quality.
