To my knowledge, the Dollarama chain of dollar stores is the largest in Canada. They have the best quality items, and the biggest selection. Some years ago I was lucky to find one Dollarama carrying Star Wars action figures. They were brand new and in mint condition, so I grabbed over a dozen for $1 a piece.

A few months back I noticed that Dollarama started selling video games. They have brand new, but older PC, Playstation, and I think Xbox games. Most are casual games, or ones geared towards younger children. But the other day I found Supreme Ruler 2020 for $2. This game is an RTS developed by Battlegoat Studios out of Ancaster, Ontario. I think it was a good find, so I will keep an eye out for other interesting games.
