Friendly and helpful businesses located in Toronto’s Jiffy...

Did you know that there are several handy businesses located alongside Jiffy at its Toronto location? So next time you swing by the Jiffy Self Storage site, why not give them a visit.

Ali and his wife Samaila source world class manufacturing companies for delivery of high quality tools to their exacting specifications — and Jiffy Self Storage business tenants are just steps away. At Canadian Hardware, you’re able to buy precision tools and supplies at prices that are often 50% less than major big box lumber retail stores.

They can easily pile up and fade with age, but not all ancient magazines should be seen as candidates for the recycling bin. Though they’re mass produced, old magazines can also become antique relics, and thus collector’s items. Some old magazines are obvious collector’s items. For example, editions of Life, Look and Time from November 1963 and the following months, the time of the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Of course, historical events such as the Kennedy shooting are obviously important, and thus people hang on to them, driving down their value as a collector’s item.
