Default Good place to buy glass - Calgary

Hey guys,

I'm new to Calgary, does anyone have any suggestion on where to buy glass in Calgary? I'm looking for 10mm, and it doesn't have to be fancy.

I have tried Crystal Glass and found they were a little expensive.

Cheers

I use crystal glass, but more out of convenience. Maybe try economy glass?

I guess that's probably a good idea, though I miss Vic already!

Gas is cheap though. Holy.

Concept has always given me good deals on glass. I find most glass shops to be way over priced for anything over 6mm.

For aquariums, if Concept is willing to sell pieces then I'd start with them. For glass shops, I've had good results (not for aquarium stuff) with New Glass on 19th just south of McKnight.

Wow. Concept is definitely the way to go. They quoted me a built aquarium for half the price of just the materials at the glass places I have called.

Great tip, you just saved me some monies (and time).
