Bento box supply stores Edmonton

Does anybody know if there are stores in Edmonton that sell bento boxes and the accessories? Bringing Lunch to work is getting mighty boring.

  1. Canakor Foods on 99th street and 31 Ave - has Japanese tableware and bento boxes.

    OR try the Indian stores along 34th Ave, for stainless steel food containers.

    OR - exchange rate is good, they have a nice selection of stuff.

    1. If a traditional bento box design isn't important to you, I suggest going with one of the Lock&Lock food storage containers. Some of the long, shallow ones have internal inserts, and work very well as bento box substitutes. I've picked these up from Zellers, Costco, Wal-Mart, etc.


      1. I bought my daughter one for school called 'laptop lunch' with removable containers (2 large, 2 small) that fit in a plastic case and then the whole works fits into a carrying case. I bought it at Chapters but have seen them at Planet Organic and Amaranth. Wasn't cheap though - $40 I think.

        1. I know this is a late response, but, I've seen them at Winners/Homesense a lot recently, for a pretty reasonable price. Just check the kitchen area, usually along the wall.
