Dollar Parity Results In Piles Of Clothes Discarded By Canadian Shoppers

Canadians are heading to the U.S. to do their shopping—and are leaving their old clothes behind in order to avoid paying a duty when they cross back into Canada.

Some Canadian shoppers wear their new clothes home to avoid paying a duty when they cross back into Canada. The old clothes get left behind in parking lots, dressing rooms and restrooms at malls and shopping plazas in the Buffalo-Niagara Falls region.

Malls are now setting up collection boxes so Canadians can donate their old clothes to charity rather than just throwing them away. Weird.
