Victoria Secret Online or in Store prices (Toronto Area)?

Trying to buy some things for my gf from Victoria Secret. Online is apparently priced in USD? My total comes to about $100 USD, which includes free shipping but Sales tax and Duty are another $33.

How are the prices in the Victoria Secret stores in the GTA? Are they the same as the prices online or adjusted for the exchange rate? The reason I'm asking is it's 5 bottoms for 28.50 online, I feel like I've seen that same deal priced in CAD in the actual store. But I might be wrong.

I was wondering if I will save any money if I go to the store (it's a bit of a trip for me so I thought I'd ask here first). There's less tax/duty that's for sure, but I'm wondering if my merchandise total will still be around $100 CAD.

Thanks for any help!

Go to the store !!!

Forget the pricing etc, lingerie is one of those things best bought in person
(For best results, and perhaps a bit of fun... Take your GF, SO, Wife with you)
Sizing, cut, fit etc differs by manufacturer
Plus, Intimate items usually cannot be returned
And Even if you could ... dealing with the border... doing so, is a SUPREME HEADACHE

I don't shop there, but I believe VS is one of those stores that use Retail Equation to track returns (good customers vs bad ones). Since online purchases may need to be returned for various reasons, I would think seeing and trying merchandise on instore before purchasing is preferable in order to minimize returns.

Sure; however, intimate items cannot be returned.
