I wonder how much companies are losing purchases from Canada due to our weak Dollar.
Seen a few items, once upon a time would have been a good deal.
Now, not a chance.
Also see products, private sales, on sale in Canada for US Dollars, making it more expensive than a brand new item bought in Canada.
Curious, that`s all.
Thanks.

It has a def affect for sure. I work for a motorcycle speed shop and we've had to increase prices over the past few months due to the decrease in our dollar. We have the advantage that we take care of our own brokerage and import due to being very close to the WA border but even being able to offer the lower prices than most of the other retail outlets, the rises in prices tend to dissuade consumers from frivolous purchases. We basically have to offer pricing which is just slightly above US retail or people stop buying. It cuts are margins down quite a bit so now we need to do more volume.
