I don't have the lead on bulk nori sheets for cheap. I've only ever seen the small plate sized sheets (about 10 or more) T&T branded sheets in the $7 -8 range at the Bento Sushi area of my local Fortinos store (Ancaster, ON).
2019-roll out the gold carpet! Wins to date: a t-shirt, too many Spotify playlists (not claimed), $25 Indigo gc, $5 Starbucks e-gc

Fortinos and T&T are both going to be expensive for nori. Try an Asian supermarket that’s not a brand name. 7-8 for 10 sheets is insanity!

For condensed milk try the same asian stores or Eastern European markets (polish /Russian) - maybe yummy or stately. It will be random brands but it may be cheaper. You could check flyers first.

Fortinos has sweetened condensed milk for 1.58 a can this week. Rooster brand, so probably international aisle. Until Jan 16.

I highly recommend against using some random brands of condensed milk; a lot of them are awful. Longevity and Eagle are the only brands I would buy. Eagle is a close second to Longevity and can be found at Costco, and sometimes for a great price. I think I've seen it go as low as $7 for a 3 pack, although it's usually higher than that (usually closer to $8). For Longevity, definitely check out asian grocery stores.

I know Korean supermarkets sell nori sheets in bulk (I think it's around 50 sheets per pack). No idea what the price is though. But likely cheaper than Chinese supermarkets as Koreans make gimbap fairly regularly.

Try chef depot. They’re a restaurant supply store.
But they give memberships to everyone even non-biz.
I saw some crazy commercial sized things. Like a 4 liter bottle of franks hot sauce.
I’m sure they’ll have condensed milk by the crate aince its a common baking ingredient

Costco has a good deal on Nori sheets. Called yakinori I think... pink package. Very popular among all the Korean families I know. I'm sure there are cheaper brands in Chinese supermarkets but this one seems good quality for the price. Not all are created equal.

Be aware that random brands are garbage.
Sweetened Condensed Milk should be just Milk and Sugar.

Junk brands have a bunch of random stuff in there.
T&T's house brand for example.

Apparently I'm a case of crazy because I buy these by the case.

If you have a business license, Snowcap sells 2/6.5kg boxes.
But I've never seen these at (wholesale) retail.

I believe Costco has a clearance on the nori full size sheets right now for $10 (if I can recall correctly). Total of 10 sealed packs and in each pack has 10 sheets, 100 sheets total.
Late reply but do you know if this is still there? I saw this post when it was initially posted but the thoguht of driving all the way there and them not having it chased me away for a bit haha, but I thought there's no harm checking up on this post.
