The stores I shop most often for gear include: buying items direct from companies, Valhalla Pure Outfitters, MEC, and Atmosphere (because I have a Canadian Tire MasterCard which gives me cashback that can be used at Atmosphere/SportCheck). I also shop at well.ca for vitamins, supplements, snacks, sunscreen, etc.
