To all the lovely Canadian online stores:
Please note that the Canadian dollar is now worth more than the US dollar. So please charge me the US price or adjust your pricing. Until then I'll be ordering from US online stores. (US stores need not adjust your pricing.) Thank you.
Don't these pink sugar bath treats look divine?
When it comes to small ticket items, a thirty cent overcharge is not a big deal. However our strangely strong dollar is finding Canadians facing a huge discrepancy on items that sell for hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars less in the USA like electronics and vehicles.
I want to know how long it will be before retailers start adjusting their prices or if Canadians are willing to go to the US to do more of their shopping. I don't truly understand the varying rates of duty when you factor in the free trade agreement.
At the risk of sounding like a girl, I just want my pretty stuff at a good price.
