Passover Shopping - Most Interesting Options

So every year, I post something along these lines but this year, I'm determined to make more of an effort. Passover is coming up and I'd like to know if it's worth it for me to shlep up to Thornhill or wherever to buy my groceries or if I'm really not going to find anything more interesting than I would at No Frills or Fortino's (on Lawrence) or the Eglinton strip. Every year, I think - maybe they'll have come up with something new and interesting for the holidays - but invariably find they've just added yet another type of matzoh (spelt, whole wheat, egg-free, oy!) into the mix.

I'm mostly interested in a one-shop (or proximate shop) experience with the basics plus a great selection of dairy products and perhaps some interesting prepared foods - bonus points if they don't gouge quite as much as the others on holiday pricing. Oh yes, and where are your favourite Passover bagels? I used to love the ones at Forest Hill Bakery on Eglinton (not the doughy kind but the ones with lots of air bubbles in them) but it's no longer there. Thx.
