Default Where do I get cool stuff in Montreal?

I'll be spending next few weeks in Montreal working for Bombardier Aerospace. I'd like to use that time as an opportunity to maybe do some shopping for surplus electronic stuff. Any good recommendations?

Default good stuff in Montreal


There were several good surplus places in Montreal when I lived there (7 years ago now). I forget the name of the place, but if you drive along the Metropolitan hwy (#40), and exit at Pie IX, head northbound, and at the first lights turn left, it is approx 200 meters on the left hand side. Two warehouses full of industrial equipment & surplus electronics. Only open during regular business hours, and closed on Sat.

Active Electronics on Paré blvd had a good surplus section in the back. A couple blocks south of the 40, west off the Decarie expressway (behind the old horse race track). I am not sure if they are still there.

There was also a place on the west island, called Eltech corp - basically, a one man operation, who had a warehouse full of neat stuff. I am not sure if he is still in business - if you want, send me an email, & I will give you his coordinates.

Next to Pie-IX you would find Addison, with loads of neat cheap stuff. On Paré street you would be looking for Abra Electronic, they have quite a big selection at low prices.

ther's also lot of Radioshack all around MTL if you're interested?

have a fun time shopping
