With the American dollar and the Canadian dollar pretty much the same now, our Canadian neighbors are coming over the boarder in droves to shop. Everything is much cheaper for them here than it is in Canada. Even cars & trucks, new & used. Well, anyway the malls up in northern Washington state are reporting that their trash cans are full and overflowing with old worn out Canadian shopper's clothes and shoes.
Yup, they wear their oldest outfits over and then purchase new stuff and wear it home. Some have been seen wearing several layers of brand new clothes back across the border. It seems it has something to do with Customs fees on the newly purchased items in shopping bags. But, if they're wearing it, I guess they figure it's no longer new. Hmmmm !
