Good service but a little tricky to find. If entering from outside at the Cargill building on Graham, take the elevator to the 2nd floor and it's a few stores to the left.
Service is good and you get your money right away unlike banks that there's limit plus waiting period because they have to order some money if they don't have enough in cash.
Preordered some MXN with no issues. You can ask for specific denominations and the rate was cheaper than the bank (when pre-ordering). Very good rate compared to the peso exchange in Mexico. So be assured the rate they offer is fair. They were very quick to message me back on Google messages to arrange pick up time and confirmation that they have the order. The gentleman that assisted me the day of was professional and friendly.
Decent customer service, fair exchange rate, they carry some exotic currencies that you can't find elsewhere, glad they got COP for me and even offered me discount rate. Thanks!
great rates, also they carry lots of currencies that you cannot find elsewhere in town.

Currency exchange is changing one currency to another for the purpose of travel, purchase or investment. According to a study of Bank for International Settlements, daily average was more than $6 trillion trading volume. Currency Mart acts as a counter-party to an off-exchange or an over-the-counter forex transaction of cash, financial instruments, futures contracts, options on futures contracts. Currency exchange is a decentralized market and operates 24 hours per day around the globe. London, New York and Tokyo are the three major currency exchange markets and followed by cities of Hong Kong and Singapore. Decentralized market means each currency exchange broker offers its own buy in and sell out exchange rates. The rates are determined based on the demand, inventory and supply of the particular dealer and also the interbank rates at that moment. That is why exchange rates at the same moment are similar, but different broker to broker.

RBC is the major player in Canadian foreign exchange market. With the other four major banks, banks count 90% of market transaction volume.

Licensed brokers who serve retail clients and small businesses fill up the rest of market gap.
