I had the same problem - supplements are amazingly expensive here in HK! Was considering having my parents send me vitamins from home, but then someone in HK recommended the website www.iHerb.com from the US.
So far am happy with it. Supplements are a fraction of what you pay in HK, they have quite a large selection (although I couldn't find everything I had in mind) & I ordered via the cheapest method (US$4) which arrived in....about 10 days. The websites provides a lot of user reviews, which was quite useful. They also provided me a code when I received my order which you can give to others for a US$5-10 discount off first order (10 if >US$40). Feel free to use it (GVB329). I paid full price but still a bargain compared to HK prices.
Another option could be to cross the border to Shenzhen. When I was living in Mainland, supplements were quite cheap there. The problem is the quality (and the lack of English on labels) - labelling was extremely erratic & often completely off, I suppose at least. For example only 40mg of vit C per 100 gram (!) of tablets?! Maybe better to stick to overseas stuff..
