Real Canadian Superstore

Recommended Posts

Looks like it's no tax day tomorrow in the GTA, plus I got a PC Plus offer to get $15 worth of points for spending $150, as well as $5 of points for every $20 spent on toys. All together that can add up to a 45% discount off the taxes included price, and that's before accounting for any of the clearance prices that are often available.

Looked at my flyer. Also have tax free tomorrow. (Manitoba)

Then you know what you have to do. Wipe them out. All of them.

Managed to get 6  21120 The Snow Hideout @ $34.94 ea (reg 44.99) and tax free (13% in MB). Ends up being ~30% off of retail+tax, so not to bad of a deal. Was the only decent set on sale.

Got a PC points offer for 20% off all toy purchases this week. There's a few Star Wars and superhero sets at my usual spots that I never see on sale anywhere else. If I'm lucky they or other decent sets might be on sale as well.

Keep us posted, I was just driving by a Superstore today wondering if I should both bother to go inside and have a look :) 

Will do. That's the thing about PC points offers being customized though - My offers will vary from yours, etc. Too bad you can only use these offers once as well. I'd hit multiple locations with a good offer if I could.

Just in case anyone was waiting in suspense, there were no deals at the locations I went to so I plunked down for some personal purchases that I never see on sale, including the truck and port a potty set. I'm working on a city scape at home and something about this set just appealed to me. I have a few various construction sets and this one has too much comedic potential.

My partner found a lone Minecraft The End Portal for 50% off yesterday at Superstore and some bionicle baddies for 50% off (Skull Scorpio wave, not the final wave). One box flap was bent, otherwise good condition.

We opened and built if of course. :)

Superstore is by far my fav place to check.. they regularly have 50% off sales on sometimes what would seem to be random sets. The other day i cleaned out the lego minecraft Jungle tree houses for 44.99. and a couple of bionicles for the kids at 50% off. Also saw the tags for star wars sets marked at 50% off but the shelves were empty. So i checked all the stores in around me for them and found that each store had different lego sets on sale. When i asked about it they told me that it all depends on the manager and whats on sale in stores around them. And NO they dont price match other Superstores. I found the fact they discounted sets based off other stores because i NEVER see 50% off anywhere else unless its a TRU clearance BOGO. I may have to check the local walmart although i have NEVER seen anything for more then 5$ off. In fact i have given up on Walmart all together.

I was at the Scarborough location this weekend and they were selling various lego at 20% off, and all Star Wars action figures and vehicles for 40% off, including the Rogue One stuff. Got me a U-wing and the new tie fighter along with some space lego. May have been a weekend only thing but I will check another location tonight.

Lots of Lego at 50% off in stores now! Definitely worth a pass through if you have one nearby. Check their website to get an idea of which sets are on sale, advertised prices in store didn't reflect the 50% discount. Price checker did.

Any examples of what you found at 50% off?

Thanks for the heads up, I might take a run at this.

Think those gas station sets are worth it? At only 515 parts with an MSRP of $110, that's not a very good parts per cost ratio. I feel that this set should be priced $60-$75...

Right? Looks like a great set, but even the sale price feels like the proper MSRP ><

As expected the order online and pickup in store did not pan out the way I expected.  Great Canadian Superflop called me just now to cancel my order due to no stock.  If it may help this is totally an instore experience because their  online inventory system does not work. Many of you may already know this but just in case.  Good luck with your orders.

@110 that's way too much but at $55 for 550 pieces that's ok for me.  At EOL you may see better on this slow mover.  But every Lego city needs a gas station right! :)

Yes, everyone needs the 1990s Octan stations.

Great thing about Superstore in store. if the Box's have any damage they will discount 30% just have to ask. So i picked up a couple Encounter on Jakkus, with very minor Damage.

Cant complain about that. 

No gas stations at my local store.

Thanks for the heads up. Grabbed 1 Station and some Elsa's Castles at Grandview Hwy. Marine Drive is wiped out (not by me, nothing there when I went). Some smaller Friends sets left at Grandview.
