Places to Buy Stuff (that are actually open)

Hey everyone,

After going through the list of suppliers for the project, it seems that we've found the same thing- a lot of them have closed up shop.  So I'm going to try my best to keep this list up to date with URLs, names, addresses and phone numbers.  If you want anything added, just comment!

Thanks Shu Qing, sorry it took so long to add in those suppliers.  I also added VEX and McMaster-Carr, as I know some of us have successfully ordered from them.

Very cool, thanks PML.  I just added Creatron on College Street (very close to U of T- they also stock my beloved Solarbotics wheels and motors), and updated the address for Solarbotics.

Thanks Greg Hoy.

I've updated the list of suppliers.

Thanks Cassie!  I've added the home hardware location on College, plus the one up on Bloor.

The Home Hardware on 304 College has quite a few miscellaneous electronics odds and ends - I haven't looked in detail because I'm an electromech...

Awesome! Well, not that there are so few, but good work!
