Woodturning/working store near Calgary ?

Hello,
I'll be in hollydays near Calgary (Canada) in August this summer. I hope to find some bargain in woodturning or woodworking stuff here in Canada (at least compared to French prices which are rather high !)
So, if you have any suggestion for a store in Calgary (or nearby), it would be appreciated :-)
Thanks in advance

You could also check out BlackForest Wood Co.@ Bay 7, 603 - 77th Ave S. W. They sell wood and tools. I believe a local woodturning Group Gathers there as well.

Lee Valley Tools has a store in Calgary. I've never had the time to stop and shop there, but IIRC, it's near Deerfoot Trail.
BTW, happy belated Canuckistani Day to our friends up north.

Hello Another store of interest is "House of Tools". I don't know the exact address but the store is at the corner of McLeod Trail and Heritage Trail, ( north east corner). All of the stores mentioned, House of Tools, Black forest and LeeValley, are in the same neighbourhood and can be easily accessed from Heritage. Enjoy Edward "

Don't forget Canadian Tire, they have some good prices on tools quite often.

These are my favourite haunts in Calgary, as also promoted by others in this thread. As far as "bargains", you might be disappointed unless the regular trade price is better here in Canada than it is for you in France. An international visitor can also apply to be refunded the federal GST (Value Added Tax and other interpretations are many) which is 7% in Canada. Only in the province of Alberta is there no provincial sales tax, which varies up to 10% additional in other provinces, yes, that's up to 17% total.
