Midland Tarp Zone was opened in 1985 under the name "Midland Liquidators" underneath where Midland Tools is today. The store slowly changed into a tool store and took over the entire building. When the business beside Midland Tools left, an opportunity arose to bring back the original store.
Our sister store Midland Tools has won the "the best place to buy tools in Nanaimo" award year after year, the reason being our philosophy here at Midland. To be a part of the community through long term employees, history and giving back. No corporate shenanigans either, we love to treat customers how we want to be treated.
Every year Midland gives back to Nanaimo in various ways; toy drives, Haven house, Loaves and Fishes and many more changing and adding more to the list each year.
Knowing the importance of buying local, here at Midland we try to keep our money on the island by buying locally and trying out local entrepreneur’s products.
We understand Nanaimo is going through some rough times right now, but we believe in downtown and we aren't moving!
We go through a lot of cardboard and we know that even in Nanaimo we need to be more sustainable, you can even call us ahead of time to make sure we have some, we don't mind. We have lots of free cardboard boxes just come in and ask. We are more than happy to help!
Rainy days will mean soggy boxes, aim for dry days.
