I chose this store because I saw a sign that they would take Passport Photos for less than $8. Only to discover the photo was rejected. It was deemed not clear enough. So I went back and asked for refund. They refused my refund, but offered to take another photo. So I took another photo and only to have it rejected it, again.

This store continues to provide Passport Photos and is still refusing refunds.

Scotiabank Chequing accounts

Scotiabank also offers plenty of no fee chequing accounts as long as you maintain a monthly minimum. I find scotiabank teller to be much friendlier and easier to work with.

Canadian Superstore

A medium quality grocery store. More expensive then No Frills, but also better quality.

Winners

Although their clothes are indeed cheaper, they seem to be either out of fashion or easy to ruin. Becareful when shopping here. Make sure you select quality clothes.

Staples

Expensive, but easy to return. I think this store will go out of business. Cannot compete against Canada Computers or Future Shop.

Verdict: Recommended if you like easy returns

Future Shop

Good on returns, but other stores offer cheaper prices. Their price match program sucks, but you can price match against best buy.

Their employees are oriented to be paid on commission. If they don't make sales, they get paid minimum wage. But if they continue to get minimum wage, they'll get fired. So they are aggressive, but not knowledgeable at all. They also get a staff discount of 10% on their products.

NCIX

Not quite sure how this store is still in business. They don't offer cheaper prices than Canada Computers and they don't have the same reputation as Future Shop or Best Buy.

Verdict: Recommended if you really cannot find a cheaper price

Best Buy

Same owner as Future Shop, but uses a different rewards towards their staff. Compared to Future Shop, Best Buy staff are more informative and less aggressive to get you to buy. 

Their price match program is the same as Future Shop, terrible program.

Their prices are still not as cheap as Canada Computers.

Verdict: Recommended if you cannot find a lower price

Canada Computers

Their priciest are often the cheapest. Their products are quality depending ont he brand. There is no return policy and their exchange policy is only for non-functional items.

http://www.canadacomputers.com/

Verdict: Recommended for being the cheapest store with quality products
