Curling Shoes

I live in Scotland and looking to buy some curling supplies in Canada to avoid the postage costs I will be visiting Toronto, Montreal and Quebec on holiday shortly. Can you recommend a sports shop selling curling shoes and located near the centre of any of these cities? Hiram

Unfortunately, you won't be visiting at the best time if you're looking to buy curling stuff, as, especially in the cities you mention, most curling equipment is sold through clubs - and most clubs close for curling at around this time of year (end of April).
And even the odd store which sells curling equipment does so seasonally, and so their curling stock is very likely put away by now.

You'd have better luck finding curling equipment after April in western Canada (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta), as curling is more of a staple there.

Good luck, in any case... hopefully someone will let you know of a rare location in one of the cities you mention where you can get curling stuff in the non-curling months.

If you're going to be in the same place for a couple of days, perhaps order them and have them delivered to your hotel?

In Barrie, Ontario which is about 40 min north of the Toronto Pearson Airport has two curling stores: Curling Depot which sells Balance Plus and the Shot Rock Shop. Both are open business hours and have web sites.

Happy shopping and sight seeing.

Thank you for the replies.

As Canadian shoe sizes use a different system to UK sizes I really feel that I need to try them on to get the correct size . This is particularly true if I were to opt for a different make from my current shoes.

It looks like I will have to buy in the UK.

Excellent.
The price quoted for Quantum Z shoes is $239 (£135) against UK price of £173. Certainly worth a visit. Hiram
