Best place to buy a food scale?

I've started home brewing beer and need to get a scale. Preferably one that's decent quality but not too expensive. I won't be using it much so I'd rather not spend too much.

I will likely just head off to wally world after work, but if anyone could suggest somewhere better in the Burlington, Ontario area, it would be much appreciated.

Lee Valley has some decent options, such as http://www.leevalley.com/us/garden/page ... 0733,44734. They have a retail store in Burlington.

I use the starfrit for heavier stuff and the lee valley pocket scale for smaller items as it seems to have better accuracy down low.


Right on, thanks for the tip. I ended up buying one at Walmart that night since I needed one immediately, but I'll return it and wait for the Canadian Tire one to go on sale again.
