I'm looking for the 3500 plano box.

I found 2 USA website that ship to Canada but they both ask 15$ shipping (for a 3$ plano box).

Is there an online store in Canada or a ground store in Montreal that sells plano box?

Try Walmart in the fishing section, or the crafts section.

They do carry Plano boxes, not sure of the series, though.

2505, rue Masson
6700 Cote des Neiges
6275 St. Laurent Street
7200 Sainte Anne-De-Bellevue Blvd

The boxes commonly referred to as Plano boxes are technically fishing tackle and utility boxes by the Plano company. As such, you can usually find them anyplace that sells fishing rods, reels and tackle; as well as at some bigger hardware stores.

I don't know Quebec at all, but did a Google search for "Plano tackle boxes and Quebec, CA" and came up with Le Baron Outdoor Products. I checked their downloadable catalog and indeed they do have the 3500. Then I looked up their address on Google Maps, relative to Laval, Quebec. I don't know exactly where you live in Laval, but Le Baron Outdoor Products is located approximately 8km away from Laval at 8601 Boulevard St-Laurent, as indicated by the red arrow on the map marked "A".

There might be other stores closer and more convenient, but I just wanted to show that the Plano boxes can be found within driving distance and that it's not necessary to spend money to have it shipped.

The image is displayed at its "large" setting. If you need to see it at its bigger, original resolution, just click on the image and then on "original" from the many size options.

Hope this helps!

Try stores that sell fishing supplies. Anywhere that sells a decent amount of tackle will carry Plano.

Try Canadian Tire and Wal-Mart as suggested by others.

If that doesn't work, you can also go look at Le Baron (Fishing & Hunting supplies) - there's one on St. Laurent a little south of the 40, which should not be too difficult to get to from Laval.

EDIT: HA! Brian already suggested Le Baron with directions.

I know for a fact that they have tackle boxes at Canadian Tire - at least at the Alexis Nihon location. I don't know if they're Plano, though.

That said, I don't care much for the particular brand, so I purchase them from Dollarama. They're cheap and work for me.
