London drugs sells way more stuff than prescription drugs and cameras. They sell computers, home theatre equipment, tvs, etc. A lot of other stuff too! It's actually one of the few places I can buy pentax in my province. I bought my k5II and 2 WR lenses in store. Their sales people actually know something about cameras and their return policy is solid as I used it once to switch from an 18-55 to an 18-135.

Good deal, unfortunately they have no stock in the BC lower mainland and ordering online is giving me processing errors.

It's probably my credit card company being protective then.

Got it sorted out. Just needed to let the card company know about the large purchase.

Ordered and now waiting.

London Drugs is a reputable authorized Pentax dealer and has continued to keep stock of Pentax gear or can order in if a person wants. Like Jayman_1975 has said London Drugs sells a lot of things, they're like a mini Costco, they have lots of varieties of items from prescriptions to electronics, to some groceries to makeup. They're a multi billion dollar company who's in BC, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. Even better yet, they have a good return policy and leads in terms of taking in recycling electronics, boxes, etc. A well regarded company in BC.

For Canadian buyers, it's better to get it in Canada where Pentax provides 2 years warranty. If you use your credit card, you can get additional 1 year warranty from credit card.
Also, that's in USD. $899 is in Canadian Dollar.
