Hi,

Here are two stores that I've been to.

Active Components: 1023 Merivale Road. (take the Kirkwood exit off the 417 and go south on kirkwood until it ends, then turn left, it should be on your right side)

Gervais Electronics: 1-716 Industrial Ave, probably easiest way to get there is via St. Laurent. The street you should look for is called Innes on the east side, and Industrial on the west side when you take St Laurent, so it's harder to miss the store.

there is a bunch more, but I can only remember where those two are.

I live in BC and I order from AllElectroncs.com in the US. Even with shipping my orders are always cheaper than what I can get locally.

Shipping is very slow, but the prices make up for it.
