Buying lens from Best Buy Marketplace

Best Buy now sells most lenses on their site from their Marketplace, selecting retailers online.
Anyone have experience buying lenses from their Marketplace retailer ULTIMAXX CANADA?
Are they an authorized retailer for Nikon/Sigma?
Their products are new with a full Canadian warranty?

A big astounding no. Don't ever buy some third party sellers on BestBuy or Amazon if you want warranty

These are generally international versions of camera bodies and lenses that carry no warranty in Canada.
I have spoken with Nikon Canada before and they assured me that every body or lens that comes to Canada has a serial number that they are very well aware of.
When you need service for your lens or camera body,they even don't look at it if it doesn't carry the serial number that they are looking for.
