I am from Surrey and bought mine at Rona on Frazer Hwy and 164th. They came as a 6 cube pack for about $42.00 including tax. The cubes are the 14 inch variety not the twelve inch. I bought tie wraps in a large multi pack container for about 10.00. Happy building:)

I live very close to the last poster based on that Rona, and I actually got mine from the Extra foods that is on Fraser hwy& 188th in Surrey, they are $25 for a pack of I think 16 grids. Most Superstores and Extra foods probably carry them I think. If not, Home depot had some at one point as well. (They also have Coroplast)

Home Depot apparently doesn't sell cubes anymore (the sign is still there but one of the employees told me that they're out of stock and are not going to order anymore).

After much searching (in Ikea and etc), I finally found some cubes in London Drugs (Richmond)! They are by Rubbermaid and come in a pack of three for $17.99! Just letting people know to save them the drive to a Home Depot only to be let down like me.

Hi, I am new to this forum.

I have been searching for those cubes, and no luck.
Someone suggested canadian tire, but the grids there are not a perfect square. (14.5" by 15.5").

Today, I went to london drugs in Coquitlam and no luck. Then, I went to Zellers - no luck.

I am been searching online as well, but no luck....

I will try Rona next week, so thanks in advance :). I need around 40 grids for my future cage, so hopefully I can see something on discount!

No one seems to be trying any Extra foods or Superstores, and I know FOR SURE that Extra foods caries them, I saw them there just the other day, and they are very cheap too, at only $25.

I am going to check tomorrow (in superstore and rona).

Also, you have to make sure they are right kind of cubes though.

14" by 14" with inner square no bigger than 1 1/8' .

Canadian tire has the "shelving wire cubes"; however, their measurements are 14.5" by 15.5".

I have to buy about 50-60 grids to make the cage I want.....so I have to check for price as well.

Thanks for the info!

Update:

I found 3 cube system at Superstore for $19.99;however, it is not a perfect square of 14" by 14". Only offered in white.
Measurements were 14 1/4 by 14 by 14 3/4.

Would it be ok to purchase this kind of cubes?

I bought cubes at Wallmart. They are a perfect square and it was 9x9 inner squares. The units were on discount at $19.95 for a 3 cube system (13 grids and 16 connectors)

Coroplast can be found at (GE) Sabic Polymershape in 104-11 Burbidge St. Coquitlam.

OR in Rona. At Rona;however, you can only find white coroplast....

Thanks in advance.
Now I am looking for fleece, PUL, and terry towelling or terry hemp.
