Weekly Wish - Lower prices on U.S. imports

I have one simple wish this week now that our dollar has achieved parity with that of our American neighbours. I’m wishing for retail prices to be the same on both sides of the border.

Sure I want to save money. Who doesn’t?

Even more so, I don’t want local retailers to lose out to cross-border shopping bargains. The big chains may be able to handle the pinch. The little indie boutiques may have a tough time. I’d hate to see them go.

What’s Next?
Will the strength of the Canadian dollar change your shopping habits? If so, how? Leave a comment.

    I'm currently in the states and near an outlet mall. the discounts are great in the outlets but i don't find the prices in regular stores much cheaper than at home (toronto) even with the falling US dollar.
