Are you as prepared for back-to-school as you should be? If you've been procrastinating your shifting in mental gears, not to mention your school supply shopping like most of us, never fear, Forest City Surplus is here to help you return in style, whatever your budget.

In business since 1980, Forest City Surplus, located a short drive from Fanshawe at 1712 Dundas Street, remains a hit among London and area students. With great deals featured weekly and a wide selection of just about everything from attire to appliances, it's easy to see why.

According to Tim Hodges, Webmaster Director at Forest City Surplus, “students always seem to have the most money at the beginning of a school term.” As Forest City Surplus allows them to get the best value for their dollar, it's no surprise that Hodges' business consistently booms around the start of the fall semester.

Aside from their affordable prices, the best part about shopping at Forest City Surplus is the convenience of being able to find just about all of one's needs at a single great location. “Mini bar fridges,” as noted by Hodges, “are among the most popular items students come and purchase at the start of a new school year...every year.”

The store was one of the first businesses in London to join the World Wide Web in the early 90s. Since that time, Forest City Surplus has been shipping fantastic items to customers across the globe.

Whatever your needs, Forest City Surplus will have a great deal for you! For the latest bargains on all of their back to school shopping “must haves”, be sure to check out their official website located at A special webpage catering to new and returning students is also available at this link.
