Waiting for $5 which is the price before pandemic
Where was it selling for $5 for 50 in-store? I have never seen that in Toronto in an actual brick & mortar store.

Well, in the original post I did say they are 3-ply and the quality is decent for disposables. Specifically, for the few I tried, the strap doesn’t easily rip off, but I’ll get a better idea once I try more. (We got a box of a different brand a few months ago which were terrible. The strap would rip off under any significant force.)

Anyhow, for 16 cents apiece, so far I have no complaints. Plus, it's nice that it comes as multiple smaller sealed packages inside each box. It makes it easy to give to family members to throw in the car or whatever.

Thanks for the feedback. I had purchased some JNC brand masks from Foody world in Richmond and they are pretty good. I also purchased some Hoco brand masks from Canada Computer and they were not as good quality as the JNC brand ones.

All the best.

First of all... not cool. But second, given that you can get them easily now for under $20 and sometimes for under $10, I just don't understand why they'd risk p!ssing off their customers like this.
most likely the small shop paid more from supplier (earlier on in the pandemic). it's hard to cost-average, compared to the bigger supermarkets.

Good for Student get togethers of 1 or more. It appears that many students don't quite understand the dangers of Covid-19 and want to party like before.

Saw this also at BTrust in Mississauga. It's located in the front right before the cashier.

Not sure about quality but $9.99 for 50 pieces.

Yep. People should be buying reusable face mask. It's just as effective and you're not killing the environment with these disposable face mask

If resuable ones were as effective, hospitals would have switched a long time ago. No matter how closely you knit fabric, you won't achieve the filtration performance of a heat bonded sheet of plastic nor get the electrostatic properties.
