I use to go to Buffalo to shop and go out to bars a lot in my younger years. Now I never go because there are many great Canadian Stores with low prices to shop in Canada. The only reason now is for a concert or sporting event. Great Post. Have a nice Evening !!!

Hardly ever

Too far for me

Less now

I used to go once a month. When our Canadian dollar was strong I didn't buy anything in Canada (besides groceries) because of the American prices being so much lower. We used to go overnight and the price of the hotel was less than we would have had to pay in duty taxes. It was worth it in every aspect.

Now with the dollar being lower and us having a few more outlet malls to choose from, there is no point. Our prices now beat them in direct product comparison. Our selection is also getting better.

Not recently

dollar isn't worth it anymore. When it was near par, I'd go a lot.

I've never gone shopping across the border and don't think I would. I've always thought that if you calculate the cost of gas you need to drive there and back, the savings wouldn't be that noteworthy. If I do go one day, it would be out of curiosity, just to see what all the hype is about.

I don't go

I don't go across the boarder to shop, even though I don't live far from New York. I have only shopped in the U.S. while on vacation. I just recently got married and need to renew my passport, so that takes away any chance of me visiting soon. However, I have not visited in the past to "just shop" because I don't think that paying for gas would be worth my while. I have some family who went across just a few weeks ago and they said that they didn't see many deals.

Never have

I've never gone, mostly because I really haven't had the time. I just work too much. It might be fun to make a trip out of it, though, if I ever do go. Girls weekend or something along those lines.
