Best Boxing Day/Week Stores!

Vote on the best deals from each of the stores!! Which retailers impressed you guys the most?

In my opinion the best place to buy stuff:
Electronics (Visions), Computer (SIG/EXPC/NCIX), Music/Video/Games (HMV), Clothes (Banana Republic/Mexx), Other Stuff (FD/XS Cargo)


The hall of shame stores:
Futureshop, Bestbuy, Staples, [rfdlink=109]The Source[/rfdlink], [rfdlink=55]Dell[/rfdlink], Costco, [rfdlink=42]Chapters[/rfdlink], London Drugs, and Sport Check

+1 Yah, I saw some cheap and useful gadgets at XS Cargo out here in the West. I'm sure FD has some good deals out in the East as well :D SiG is good but many of the deals are in-store only, so I can't buy any of them since I'm in in West :(

With all the exitement I had this holiday season, FS was my favourite, and then came their super hot flyers that shocked me so hard with they're deals that I dont even feel like shopping there anymore.
I dont know about the Visions store but their 32" Sony is priced hot!
As of now, no favs, im waiting for NCIX.

Because we're used to seeing deals so hot that these are very common prices for us. This might not be the same for others.
my 2 cents.

Ohhh, looks like SiG is in the lead, followed by HMV and "Others"
For those who voted, which stores counted as Other for you? FD, XS, BR etc?
