Hi,

I'm off to Canada in October, and fancied laying my hands on a SB2 to keep my SB1G company, given the more friendly $ price when compared to the UK price.

Is there any chain that acually stocks the SB2 in-store (in Canada - Ottawa area to be specific) - or is it order-only, and I'm going to be out of luck?

Thanks ..

The only place I know that stocks them in Canada is Kawartha TV in
Peterborough, about a 3 hour drive from Ottawa.

Slim have said in the past that they will ship to Hotel's etc, so that might be an option.

Thanks Barry - is their address a retail outlet? I'm not going to be turning up at a warehouse if I go visit them am I?

Thanks to all for their replies and suggestions.

Hi Chris - it's not really a retail outlet, but I think you can drop in
anytime during normal business hours. They have an SB2 set up in their
office for demos, and had a good supply of the units when I was there a
few months ago. Best to contact them first to make sure they have what
you want, and to confirm that the timing of your visit is okay.

Cheers,

Barry
