About Us

STEAM is for everyone and that is what we at The Gorilla Store want our customers to know. We developed from an electronic surplus store and into a STEAM based educational specialty store. Our main focus is inclusion in all things STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). Our hope is to bring DIY Kits and Bits to children and adults alike so that they may learn and explore without feeling overwhelmed or intimidated. We encourage all to interact and explore the world around them!


The Gorilla Store strives to be an inclusive and ecologically conscious business. Our goals are to provide our customers with gifts, books, and kits that take into account their impact on the environment, the local, provincial, and national economy as well as its intrinsic sustainability. 


The College and Bathurst location will become a hub in the community for all things STEAM and Maker! Our goals for this space are to create a tight knit community where people can discuss ideas and philosophies to create a more sustainable, economic, and ecologically sound world. 


To be the premier destination for those seeking a Safe, Creative space by encouraging individuals to explore STEAM related content while maintaining an Ecologically Sustainable store.
