Looking for a home organizing store

Years ago I came across this store in a mall on the left side of the highway between Niagara and Toronto
It was in a mall area very large store, nice name which I think it was a bigger brand but I can't remember

If anybody knows the name please reply to this

Alternatively I am looking for a store specialized on these things in GTA

thanks

Don’t know that specific location
BUT you could always do a GOOGLE MAP Street View to see what’s what

As to stores specializing in home organization goods:
THE BIG TWO in the industry:
* Solutions Store
* The Container Store

* The Organized = Found this one while GOOGLING : Home Organization Stores
Seems to be a new comer out of Ottawa. Specializes in mail order

Lots of other great sources are out there too
Considering the specialized stores tend to be expensive

Look at :

For DIYers
* Lee Valley (hardware for drawers & closets etc )
* Cdn Tire (containers)
* A Dollar Store (containers)
* Bed Bath & Beyond (drawer inserts)
* Home Depot, Lowe’s, Rona for closet systems (like Rubbermaid, Closetmaid etc)
* OR for Garage STorage Systems
* Also Costco
* Amazon.ca ... for everything

The Solutions in Waterloo is closing. Which I understand as there was never anyone in there pre-covid.

Thank guys ...I already checked the big box stores and they do not have many optios
The $Store had some things but wife is not happy :-)) needs more and cooler things
None of the above is what we saw back then ... grrr We always wanted to go back to see that one and now I can't even find the mall on Google map anymore
It was a mall like the Vaughan mall one, multiple buildings separated by a parking areas

Question ...
You say mall on the left hand side ... assume off the 403 / QEW

But was that travelling southwest to Niagara, or northeast towards TO ?

Direction of travel matters here if you are going to zero in on possibilities / look for clues

Did you go to Dollar Tree? That place is amazing, everything is $1.25 and you'd be amazed at what you can get. All kinds of boxes, plastic baskets, etc. Some locations are better than others and apparently the stores here in Canada are far superior to the US ones.

Canadian Tire is carrying the Home Edit line. Home Edit is a Netflix show so they are having trouble keeping items in stock.

The Container Store used to offer organization services. They would look at your space and tell you how to lay it out.

Also - Ikea.

Another one to consider...

Lots of different ways to organize your home/condo.
We kinda like the different character big boxes for shelves.

And yes they also have different types of boxes including rentals for moving because ..well..they also do storage.
