Where do Canadians buy their batteries?

I here the Americans buying 6 volt batteries from Costco. Seems the Canadian Costcos dont sell them. Only a crappy 12 v marine battery.
I have also tried Canadian Tire, Walmart ect.... none of them have any kind of battery selection for Rvs.

I have located an actual Battery store in Hamilton Ontario......

Where do you Canadians get your batteries from???????

How soon do you need them. They are just about 1/2 the price in the US. I bought a set at Sam's Club in Yuma last year for about $68.00 each. I think the enviro charge in Arizona was 6 bucks a battery and the California fee is $ 9.00. They are available in Costco and Sam's club for about the same price.
I didn't really need them but being my batteries where at least 4 years old I bought a set. The batteries weight the same amount as my original batteries so not too much fear of inferior batteries. At home the best price I found was about $125.00.

Need them asap as the batteries do not hold a charge. Tested with hydrometer and one cell is completely dead. Its strange that costcos in Canada dont carry a selection of deep cycle batteries.

FWIW . . . not all Costco stores in the US carry 6v golf cart batteries either. I'm in Connecticut and I had to go to Sam's Club and pay the extra non-member charge when I needed mine.

Sorry, I can't help you with a Cdn supplier. I have never seen them at a reasonable price in Canada. And I keep my eye open for that kind of thing.
