I was shocked by how much cheaper my St. John's Wort and New Chapter multi was in Bellingham. I am looking for a reputable/inexpensive online Canadian retailer for supplements and vitamins. At the risk of this thread having the shiitake spammed out of it, any suggestions? I used to just buy them at Lifestyle Markets in Victoria but I'd like to find a cheaper option that doesn't require me taking a ferry to get them.

I thought about the Vitamin Shoppe chain in the US, but then all of a sudden the shipping charge was $59. That will not do.

Have you looked at Noah's? I usually get mine in-person at one of their stores.

I've never heard of Noah's? I don't think we have them here. I have to mail order, anyway, because my local health food store has insane prices. I'll check thrifty vegan, thanks!

I wish! I have to send my passport off to England so I don't think I'll be able to come down for at least six months, unfortunately. :( We should hang out in the peace park together. You can smuggle me up some vitamins!

6 months! Jeez. It would be funny if we hung out in the Peace Park.

We would have to crack some beers. I imagine that is a punishable offense.

No prob!

I've only ordered the multivitamins from them before (waiting for some in the mail now!), I don't know how their St. John's Wort is. But I hope you find its okay! Pain in the asparagus to find any vegan supplements around here.
