Where to get plastic/plexiglass?

Post by HotDog-Cart » Wed Jun 11, 2008 5:30 pm

Hey guys. I need some advice on where to get plastic or plexiglass? I'm in Ontario Canada.

Stores I know that MAY carry it:

Home Depot
Canadian Tire
Home Hardware (and Home Hardware: Building Center)


But where else could I find plastic or Plexiglass

I cant buy plastic off the net as I need to get it ASAP.

Thanks.

Any hardware store or building center should have it. Some art/craft stores and framing stores have it as well.

Just go to a hardware store, %90 of them have plexi.

Also, if you wanna drive 400 miles, my Grandma will sell you some from her hardware store :P

Look in the phone book under Plastic. You may have to call a few places to find one that will sell you a single sheet or a partial sheet. But you'll have a much better selection, and one-on-one advice for how to handle that plastic once you get it home.
