Default Where do I buy a Gott cooler in winter ?

I'm looking for a 10 gallon Gott (Rubbermaid). I can't find any because its winter. I live in Calgary. Walmart doesn't have them, nor does Home Depot.

Any idea where I could find them ?

Thanks.

You can order them straight from Rubbermaid. I did and paid what I would have if I bought it at Walmart - Including shipping. I forget if I got a discount - but it was better than pulling my hair out each time I went searching for a ten gallon gott. The only ones I could find in stores were 5 gallons.

Hope this helps.

They're here in PHX for $39.

Take a vacation after the holidays when fares go down.

Oh.. and don't leave any of those funny coins.

Bought my Coleman Xtreme at a Dick's Sporting Goods. Place like that might have Rubbermaid coolers year-'round, as well.

Crappy Tire said they don't have and can't get them. They seem to handle Coleman but not Rubbermaid. I tried Home Depot, Walmart, etc. Nothing.

I found one for C$70 at a local hardware store. They sell them to golf courses. I was calling sports stores that cater to team sports like football and soccer and they didn't have them either.

Normally yes, but trying to sell bevvy coolers in the winter to Canajuns won't get you an MBA at any university I know of

We have to really chug back the suds when we go out ice fishing. Ya have to drink fast before it freezes.

Are you dead set on the Gott? Amazon.com has the 50 Qt Igloo Max for $31 USD.

OH, and I remember the Canadian winters well. Used to live in Toronto and traveled to Montreal, Edmonton, Calgary and Winterpeg fairly regularly.
