I would have to disagree with that statement. My experience has led me to believe that purchasing from overseas can be considerably cheaper than ordering from either stores quoted above. For example my last 3 overseas Pantac purchases have been roughly 30% cheaper than purchasing from in country sellers. That's includes base price, shipping, duties, PST and GST and smiles.

That being said is a gem of a store which I am compelled to order from at least once a month from.
