I think your best bet is Sincere Tackles. They might be able to arrange an early collection of prawns if you call them in advance. Good luck on your fishing!

Yes, but your losses may vary depending on the health of the prawns when you bought them. You need to keep the prawns as inactive as possible. Because if they're not, they will be fighting, eating and excreting waste into the water making the water condition go bad very quickly. Chilling the water is a common way to counter this, if you're using ice, be sure they don't have direct contact with the seawater. It helps to have a spare change of seawater.
