Looking for a certain type of old CRT

I've been bit by the retro game collecting bug and have myself a fine collection of nes games. What I'm looking for are old crt's like sony pvms or hd crt tv's. Was wondering on what sort of stores I could visit in Toronto to find one besides sifting through Kijiji and Craigslist.

Cash converters maybe (if they even exist still I don't know...)

Kijiji may be your only option, but even then one might be hard to find on there as well

They would probably pay you to pick it up ! ...LoL
There used to be a monitor recycling place here in Montreal, so there might be one in GTA as well.

I used to get high quality/high resolution CRT monitors from an electronic recycler in Mississauga, this was going back to like 2007-2008, I held out switching to LCDs for a while and you couldn't really get CRTs any more for computers (at least not good ones) but this recycler had lots of good ones for like $20, these monitors originally sold for like $800+. I doubt they still have stuff like that but it's worth a look on Kijiji/Craigslist, that's how I found them originally.

Yeah, I figured Kijiji/Craigslist were the only real options considering most regular crt tvs weight +120 lbs
