The best and worst Dollarama stores in Toronto
Dollarama in Toronto is kind of a necessary evil, providing a quick one-stop shop for essential basics at low prices, even if the prices aren't really that low anymore. If you're planning a trip to one of these stores to pick up some stuff on the cheap, though, it's good to know where to go and where to avoid.
Here are my picks for the best and worst Dollarama stores in Toronto.
This location at a mall is nice and spacious with lots of selection, meaning they often have things in stock that might be more difficult to find at other stores. Say goodbye to a pathetic snack selection!
This location is one of the most massive we have here in Toronto, and there are two (count 'em, two!) sides with cashiers. We all hate waiting in those long Dollarama lines when lots of people are shopping.
Conveniently located near a bus stop, you can grab what you need from here and get going. It's also near a Shopper's so you can easily compare prices and get similar items for cheap without going far. It's also quite a large location.
This location is very clean and located away from a main street so it's not as picked over or busy with lots of people during rush times.
This store is located on a lower level so not only is it a bit gloomy, there's no escalator or elevator so it's very inaccessible with lots of steps to climb. The layout isn't great and there sometimes aren't enough cashiers to help everyone.
It's not necessarily the way this location is stocked that makes it a bit problematic. The location right next to Moss Park may make it a bit rough around the edges, so while you might find gems inside, it's possible that the atmosphere won't be your favourite.
This location can be a fun or convenient stop when visiting the mall, but you don't want to spend too much time down in this windowless basement location or you might start to feel suffocated. It can also get busy and loud due to its mall location.
This location is rather cramped with lots of narrow aisles and weirdly organized nooks and crannies. When staff are restocking it can be hard to get by which isn't fun for either party. Many people visit this location across from a subway station and under apartments, so long lines can form sometimes.
