From WKBW Channel 7 in Buffalo:
If you’re anywhere near a local mall these days there’s good chance you’ll spot even more Canadian license plates than usual. That’s because the Canadian dollar has grown stronger and now goes further at U.S. Stores.
Better selection and lower taxes on this side of the border have long drawn Canadians. “We’re saving a lot more because the taxes are lower,” says Marianne Bolonga of Niagara Falls, Ontario who was shopping with a friend on Wednesday at the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls, NY.
“Pretty much you can’t get the brands back in Canada so just better to come over here I guess,” says Blair Fontana, a Canadian shopping for clothes at the Fashion Outlets.
