Canadian shoppers skirt duty, leave skirts

During this holiday season, scores of Canadians have been crossing the border to do their clothes shopping, in order to take advantage of the favorable exchange rate. But to avoid paying the duty on the items as they cross back into Canada, many of the shoppers have been shedding their old clothes and wearing the new ones on the trip back. Sneaky devils.

What happens to the old clothes? According to an AP story, “The old clothes get left behind in parking lots, dressing rooms and restrooms at malls and shopping plazas…”

One mall employee reports, “Oh, we found shoes out in the parking lot. Old shoes. We’ve had people come in and say ‘there’s shoes in your parking lot.'”

Apparently the music of Celine Dion is not the only garbage Canadians have left in the United States. Zing!
