There aren't really stores that carry power tubes that much. Places like Audio Oasis or MKOM may have some from time to time but it'd be hit and miss. Of course, http://www.thetubestore.com is located in Hamilton but I don't think they have a retail location...

Most stores buy their tubes from the Tube Store. While they don't have a retail location, if you phone them early in the day, they will answer and they are quite helpful.

Actually they do have a service counter and they do provide in person service. Or at least they did the last time I was there which was about six months ago. I live 10 minutes away and I have visited them to purchase tubes many times over the past couple of years......

@ tubestore, you can walk in and pick up tubes if you prefer them not shipped or want to get them quicker. I would check availability first.Looks like they stock 4 2A3s. I seriously doubt you're going to find anybody else in GTA stocking volume.

The ability to properly test and closely match your tubes is an important part that the tube store provides . Your not going to get that from a dealer who just stocks some different sized tubes because they sell tube amps. The guarantee would also be solid from the tube store and maybe non existent 3rd party.

Very good points Jimmi, they have been around for eons and very tight on QC and customer service.
