If you do decide to buy in Vancouver, you might want to try Rodeo at Oakridge.
They have a few Gucci pieces there...
Definitely cheaper than the Gucci store. I managed to pick up a ring for about 460$ after tax, but that was with 40% off the original tag price they had... Gucci store was selling it at $575...

The sales said that if you can manage to get them the model #, they can check and see if they can give u a price different price....But regardless, i think they'll give it cheaper than the Gucci store.... thats just my opinion though

my mom works at the Gucci store, i can assure you it's cheaper overseas. The only real savings here in vancouver is during boxing week, other than that, you're paying premuim premuim

I think there's a Gucci sale starting on the 5th, at least it is in the US, and I heard it is here too (just like last time).

The prices are about the same. I actually checked when I went back. You might save a little with the currency rate but you save a lot on tax.

I was just in HK a month ago, the prices are virtually the same ...you only save the tax like the other posters have mentioned.

Yes, they're from the Gucci store
