Canadian Tire is more of an appropriate equivalent of Robert Dyas

Just to add my two pennies worth, when we were there last Sept, we did do quite a bit of 'window shopping', one of the stores which seemed to offer good value was 'the brick', I have it on good authority that they will 'haggle' should you purchase multiple items from them in one hit!!

They do, provided you don't mind when your item will be delivered, can be anytime between now and 12 months from now.

I had heard this before I shopped with them and thought that the comments were harsh. Two bought items later, I will never shop with them again.

But they aren't really a Argos sort of store.............on another note, leaving Cornwall for Canada, interesting choice

i noticed there is almost a common theme in your responses i.e. that almost all big stores sell almost anything. (like the stores aforementioned).
