I've just tried visiting Herrschner's retail location on Victoria only to
find it closed and another store in its place. (Google Street View
indicates it used to be there.)
I called the phone number for their store listed on their site and got
their mail order phone menu tree. Sadly it seems they no longer have a
physical presence in Canada.
