It's the ski industry and it's retail... it's not going to be pro form, but I assume no one is dumb enough to expect that. Comor is still cheaper than other local shops selling Line, Armada, etc. Besides, much of what you're paying for is the expertise of the staff; I know you think you know what you're talking about but I promise, Dallas knows more! This is all particularly useful if you're buying boots which really should be bought retail.
Comor has the best prices, and I'm not ragging on them, but last year I bought my skis there and it took something like a month and a half to get a pair of wide brakes in from Rossi, and 3 calls before that. Regardless, good product selection, and maybe the best staff wasn't there when I purchased my skis (been back since and had good service).
However, for ski repairs and servicing, I still trust snowcovers more. You might pay a bit more, but the techs have a lot of experience there and know what they are doing extremely well.
chronics you will find at north shore ski and board on lonsdale in north van
dalbello you will find at destination ski on marine drive in north van (and i think they might also have chronics)
both shops are really easy to get to by seabus and 1 bus
