Where can I buy a spring for my Metallica flipper? (locally)

I noticed that my METALLICA left flipper wasn't "coming back" to its default position the other day and when I checked below, one of the springs had broken.

I realize I can order these from MARCO or whatever but does anyone know a spot locally, around Montreal, where we can purchase such small items?

Thanks!

Player One on Begin street in St-Laurent. You have to pay first and the order comes from Toronto. They carry parts for modern Sterns.
Alouette on Delmeade street in Mont-Royal for all your parts needs. R.A.B. now works there.
Road Show, Last Action Hero, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Stargate, F14 Tomcat (in restoration)

Player One always takes too long (took me 2 months to get a shaker motor from them once) but I totally forgot about Alouette! Will swing by tomorrow, thanks!

A philosophy of doing shall rule til the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to wipe my own ass, adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman from sighing, there will be only memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build a RRSP of memories, come hell or calm tides.

P.S. A man needs something to do besides contemplate how crazy everyone has become in a world of overly exaggerated self-importance upheld and maintained by the new dumb.
