Frustrated with lack of places to buy sim cards in Montreal

Hello,

 

So I understand that things are just opening up around the city. 

 

I went to 3 places, 2 listed as places where you can go for Public Mobile

The Cathedral on St Catherine's - usual kiosk was closed.

Koodo in Eatons Centre - did not have Public Mobile sim cards in stock at this time

TELUS / Koodo 3027 Notre-Dame St W - have a stand sorta for Public but sims not in stock at this time.

 

I have been without my phone due to needing a new sim card for my new phone for a week now. I traveled around the down town with no luck.

 

Can these places please be stocked with sim cards. I ordered online last Tuesday in case this happened - still waiting for the card to show up.

 

If these stores had some in stock at all times, this could have been solved in a day or 2.

 

Just wanted to grumble as I think this needs to be fixed.

Try Walmart or London drugs.(London Drugs for provinces that have it)

 

You can buy online as well through PM I find it has been taking long that route. However Canadian Cell Supplies sells them cheaper for $3.33 currently with free shipping via Canada Post.

 

 (For others reading) pickup in Mississauga area available if you're near there.

@MizC  not sure where you are in Montreal but I've picked some up at Walmart stores on the south shore no issues.

Re: Frustrated with lack of places to buy sim cards in Montreal

Thank you and all for the tips.

I am pretty far from Mississauga, in Quebec 🙂

I don't have a car so Walmart is pretty hard to get to.

 

I did check the links that are on the site for places to go downtown but none of them had the sim cards.

 

This is why I brought up the subject here, for us downtown car-less people, having places downtown Montreal would be great.

 

I did order online but it is the wait without a phone that is annoying, hopefully here tomorrow.

 

Thanks again all

@Jb456 Are there actually London Drugs in Quebec. I have never seen any in Ontario or even Gatineau. I grew up in BC and one of the stores I miss living in Central Canada is LD.

Sorry I have edited my post a bit. I always try to answer a question for all that are reading regardless of what province. As it may assist someone else that comes across the post and not just the OP.

 

I've added London Drugs (for provinces that have it)

 

London Drugs is BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba I believe.

Check eBay for 99 cents including the SIM card, Craigslist for free cards, or Canadian Cellular for $3.33.
