100w equivalent (1500-1600 lumen) 5000k (or at least 3000k) 90+ CRI bulbs in Canada? or finding high CRI bulbs in genera

Just curious if anyone has ideas on where to source 100w equivalent (1500-1600 lumen) 5000k (or at least 3000k) 90+ CRI bulbs in Canada? Also it'd need to be in small quantities (eg. 1 or 2). As it's for individual use.

The only option I've found is that Amazon.ca occasionally as Feit brand 4 packs that looks like it's being shipped from the states. Other US options have over $50 shipping fees alone which make them a no go.

Costco has I know has 60w 3000k 90 CRI bulbs by Luminus (which I suspect is rebranded Feit). I currently have some of these so I know how they compare to 80 CRI ones. They're however too dim in the areas I'm looking replace.

Ikea has high CRI bulbs (no sure the specific number) but I think they only have 2700k or warmer color temperatures which aren't preferable.

I've seen 60w 2700k Philips bulbs at Home Depot (not listed online), but I can't seem to find anywhere that stocks the wider range of 100w options Philips lists on their own Canadian website.

These type of bulbs are just commonly available in multiple brands at major retailers like Home Depot down in the states with barely any premium over 80 CRI, but it seems like Canada only commonly stocks plain 80 CRI ones.

Walmart sells the Philips ones you're looking for. I don't know why all the Home Depot ones are the 80 CRI versions, but Walmart seems to have the 90 CRI versions in most/all types.
