We have been in business for over 40 years!
In May of 1980 Forest City Surplus began as a small 3500 square foot store
in London, Ontario, Canada.
In 1993 we moved our store to a 10,000 square foot location and
in 2011 with the addition of a new Tactical
room we expanded to 12,000 square feet.
We hired some clever programmers, designed an online shopping cart system and started shipping surplus deals to customers world wide.
Currently we have staff who work exclusively in our internet department updating our
website, answering phone calls and shipping orders.
We are 100% Canadian and locally owned and operated.
We buy and sell surplus closeout inventories, manufacturers' overstock, and big box store
excess from national US and Canadian retail chains.
Every year thousands of new products arrive and thousands of products sell out!
This is a listing of new products
that have arrived recently
and this link shows the current summary
of items we have
Many customers stay up-to-date on our latest deals by subscribing
to our Email newsletter.
As you can see we carry a huge selection of products and we are constantly hunting
for new and unusual items! This is fun for both us and our customers.
Typically over 14,000 different items are in our retail store, many of which are available on our website.
Our inventory range includes just about anything imaginable from
gear to off-lease computers
Customers also seek us out because of the many hard to find products we stock.
Since the ancient days of Apple II clone computers we have always carried a large variety of electronics
Our regular weekly customers include Electrical Engineers, Artists, Film Makers, Technical
and Artistic Teachers, Inventors and many other highly creative people.
From the talented Greg Curnoe
to the genius behind Trojan Technologies
we are honoured to have had, and continue to have, great people in our midst.
We hope you enjoy shopping on our website and/or in our retail store.
