Looking for barbells and weights set

After the covid-19 situation I decided to invest in a barbell / weight lifting set so that I can do some weight training at home without going to a gym.
Any recommendations where to buy? Is shipping difficult since they are heavy? Will it be easier to buy from local stores? If so any recommendations? In Greater Vancouver area here.

Thanks in advance.

I looked around kijiji, in store at fitness depot, and a few places online. The physical stores seem to be hit and miss for inventory. Not much selection for weights and barbells at fitness depot. It all comes down to how soon do you want this stuff. Right now there is a premium on everything so if you're tight on a budget it may take some time to catch decent deals.

I ended up ordering weights from Amazon (free prime delivery).

Still deciding on a bench and barbell. I've been checking Fitness Avenue , Fitness Depot, Treadmill Factory . Shipping is definitely expensive for fitness equipment so if you can find it in store, save yourself some money. Also, I've heard a good place to check is play it again sports. Good luck!
