Don't listen to this guy, he has no idea what he's talking about.

As long as you aren't buying anything illegal (ie. no price tags, cash only) at Pacific Mall, there's nothing to worry about.

I agree with VM and have lived in the Markham area directly adjacent to Pacific Mall / Market Village for almost 20 years. The previous comment generalizing that Chinese will rip you off since they are racist is a GROSS misstatement and should not be taken seriously. Go find out for yourself and I'm sure you'll find it an interesting visit.

For the record, I am of Chinese descent and I don't appreciate broad based attacks against people of my ethnicity nor slander against anybody else's.

Okay I was wrong, they rip EVERYONE off, you just don't get ripped off as much if you're asian. But it's not all the time, friend of mine got a TM G26 for $220 which is the same as if you were to do a pre-order. And in another unfortunate case I met somebody who spent $300 on an EBB!!

EDIT - Didn't mean to be racist but I am Chinese as well and have been living in Toronto my whole life so I really don't get your point. I'm not saying you shouldn't check out Pacific Mall cause of that it's just what I think, if it has offended you than I am sorry.

Bullshit.
I had a ball there as always when I've gone, I'm definitely a white boy. So are my friends and girlfriend who had a great time. We were well treated.

Like everywhere, some folks will try to rip you off. On your part, shop wisely.
Make one walk through the entire mall, note places that sell what you want, compare prices First.
Then shop. Do some polite bargaining (it's fun and part of the 'game').

I found (except for Kuramae) every shop owner to be polite and helpful. Maybe it's the grey hair.

I think they caught wind of ur internet reputation and treated you with respect due to fear of flaming : P

LOL Kuramae people are OK on the phone but real bitches to deal with in real life.

If looking for gear and some army surplus in Markham also check out Creative Outdoors (Hwy 7 & West Beaver Creek / Leslie).

Ryan dropped by the house of fun and toys yesterday. We will be opening a walk-in office soon, however, as Vipa pointed out.

For surplus in the downtown Toronto area, I usually hit up Central Surplus on Yonge St. It's a block North of Wellesley on the West side of the street. Big yellow sign that says "CENTRAL SURPLUS". Hard to miss. ^_^

Oh, I should mention that they like to make you pay cash. Every time I go in, one of the salesmen will carry my purchases to the counter and say, "This stuff, I'll give you $20 off if you pay in cash." I tried opting for debit once, and I think I hurt his feelings. ^_^;;

If you're bringing a girl along, get her to buy your stuff at Central Surplus. I think they have a pretty serious breast discount.

Central Surplus. Bring a girl and come after 4pm, the owners Nick and his wife leave the store to the other folks and they are alot nicer.

Thanks all!
A most productive adventure about TO.
Loads of good info. I have already spent way too much, and I will be back in town next week to do it all over again.
Maybe even try and get into a game, if there is any evening activity to be had in the Markham region. (Cab downtown cost is insane..)

Creative outdoors is the only place to go in Markham in my opinion. Good gear and good prices.
