Yahoo! the Canadian dollar is finally worth something again. It hit 95cents US this week.
However some stores, mostly the bigger chains, have still got the US prices and the Canadian prices changed over on their tags. So a book for example could have a price of $4.00 US/$6.95Cdn. At the current exchange rate if you paid for it in Canadian funds you would be ripped off as it should cost $4.20Cdn. a difference of $2.75.

Retailers have been very slow in changing to a more realistic rate.

The solution I found was to go to the bank, change my Loonies to US currentcy then buy the product with the US greenbacks. I saved $38.97 doing this when I purchased my new lawnmower.

Just a word to the wise till they finally get on the ball.
