Thanks Philx. I did find it at Williams Sonoma online shopping, but learned a few years back when purchasing a stand mixer in the US, once my mixer crossed the border, the warranty was void. Thats why I try and shop at home now.
It you are referring to the Vita-Mix 5200 Costco Richmond had them in stock. They have them available online now. Also you could order directly from Vita-mix. I went the Costco route. I'm really happy with it.
