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.

    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.

      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.

        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.

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