Any stores going bankrupt in Toronto?

I'm looking for a good FR bike, I wonder if anyone knows any stores that are going broke to get a good deal on a bike. Thanks.

this is sad lol
Why are you hoping for bike shops to close down so you can get a good deal? Where are you going to take it to fix if something is wrong with your bike? You should get it during year end (right now). A lot of shops are having from at least 10-20% sales. You should support your LBS even though they are kinda ripping you off...!

not to mention...if you took your head out of your rear, you would realise that instead of going around to all the bike shops. You can be super lazy, and listen to me, because all of the deals will be at the bike show which is this saturday.

Yea you're going to be banned pretty soon. But before you go, remember to try and see if any bike shops are having any closeout sales on 05' or 06' bikes. Or you can go the route of buying parts on sale and building a bike.

Checkout some online retailers for closeout prices and sales.
