Nothing compares with a cruise through the aisles of Active Surplus. Follow the link and see what I mean. If you have any love of hardware stores, curiosity shops, crazy bargains, project supplies or electronic bits and bobs, you’ll understand my sense of loss.
There’s still the Active Surplus on Steeles, but we need one closer. Word is that a new location is being sought. How about Lower Gerrard? Rents are still reasonable and the street is becoming a destination, like Queen West used to be. I’ll send an email message.
