The Dollarama at 1170 Taylor Ave is a cacher’s paradise – but bring cash. They’re also a supporter of the Carol Shields Memorial Labyrinth.

I second the vote for Dollarama. They have locations all over the city and everything in the store is a dollar (or less). It is a great place for parents of young children too as you can go in there and come out with elated kids without breaking the bank.

This particular Dollarama does in fact Rock, Roll, and Boulder, however, I remember once instance when a Lizard required golf pencils and they didn't seem to have any. It was quite disappointing but the schwag they carry is great!

Can't remember what the name of it is... but if you're familiar with the Walmart that's basically at the Bishop Grandin/Kenaston corner area... the dollar store on the other side of the parking lot from that Walmart has TONS of awesome stuff. Love that one.

If I recall correctly, that's a Buck or Two store.

This cache gives a tour of three Dollarama's:



Multi-cache  Dollarama by HoggerJeff & the Piglets (GCR0KG) (2.5/2) Size: Regular



You'll have to wait for the snow to melt to get the final, but the stages are all winter friendly.

I did the Dollarama multi in the winter, should be able to pull it out if you're willing to dig about for a bit.
