Where can I find Le Creuset?

...Creuset be found, oh where oh where can it be"? ya'll know the tune right?

I want to stock my kitchen correctly with Le Creuset dutch ovens of all sizes. I know about looking at Ross and Marshalls and TJMaxx, but does anyone know where I can find them at their best prices? I know how much they cost and I think I've given birth and spent less........ :?

If you know of a great place online or otherwise for such items, could you please help me? Thanks in advance

I bought mine here and got a GREAT price. I waited until it was on sale. I think with shipping I paid $110 or so for a 7 quart french oven. It was delivered very quickly as well and their customer service was fantastic!

gb.........
I've got that bookmarked from a few years ago.
I know that sometimes, they have great prices.
I also know that there are other places I can find it on sale online.
I'm just antsy and want to start purchasing my collection and want the 'best' price I can find so I can justify my over extravagance.
I think I've even seen them on Amazon.com.
thanks for the link though, many may not know of it

after thought, reason for edit:
Le Creuset has outlet stores throughout the nation.
I have found 4 in California.
They are still kinda expensiosa, but if I'm buying up several sizes, it's worth it to make a drive.

lecreuset.com
then you hit on these for the next page:
site map
store locator
dealers and factory stores

GB, do you find 7 qt to be a good sized French Oven? I really want one but want something not to small, not to big, but just right for making soups, sauces, roasting meat (say a 3-5 lb roast). I need to make an investment in something that can work for a lot and not have to buy too many different pieces (as much as I'd like to, the checkbook won't allow!).

I find it to be the perfect size for me. It is big, but not so big that you can't do small stuff with it. I am finding that it is the most versatile cooking vessel in my possession.

DO you live near an outlet mall? Often you can find cookware at good prices there.

I think the site GB gave has about the best prices I've seen online for Le Creuset. But, you can always "google" (www.google.com) and search on "Le Creuset" and check out the prices at a bunch of other places.

Cooks catalog or Cooks wares will mail out a catalog to you more than likely the best prices you will find next to an outlet store where you can buy seconds at a 15%[?] discount.
