Canadian online consumers to avoid cross-border shopping due to decreasing dollar


The Canadian dollar continues to drop, falling below the 80 cent brink to reach a record low in almost six years. As a result of this, Canadian shoppers are set to keep their shopping habits on this side of the border instead of buying from U.S. shopping sites, which has been a strong trend over the past few years when the U.S. and Canadian dollar were almost on par.

Cross-border shopping will not end completely as there are still items that Canadians vie for unique to American retailers but the overall trend to shop in Canada, online and in-store, is the way of the near future. CJ
