DETROIT-BORDER SHOPPING
(2007-11-23)
(wgvu) - THE CHAIRMAN OF THE DOWNTOWN WINDSOR
BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION ISN'T HAPPY WITH A CROSS-BORDER
PROMOTION AIMED AT CANADIAN SHOPPERS.
ANYONE HEADING INTO THE U.S. AT THE WINDSOR-DETROIT TUNNEL TODAY
WILL RECEIVE A 20-DOLLAR GIFT CARD THAT CAN BE USED AT FOUR
DETROIT-AREA SHOPPING MALLS.
THE DAY AFTER AMERICAN THANKSGIVING MARKS THE BEGINNING OF THE
CHRISTMAS SHOPPING SEASON SOUTH OF THE BORDER. CANADIAN SHOPPERS
HAVE BEEN STREAMING ACROSS THE BORDER IN RECENT WEEKS, EAGER TO
SPEND CANADIAN DOLLARS THAT GO FARTHER IN THE STATES.
LARRY HORWITZ, CHAIR OF THE WINDSOR BUSINESS GROUP, SAYS
CANADIANS NEED TO RESIST THE URGE AND SHOP LOCALLY.
