The shopping is on in earnest and while the occasional push and shove will make news, for the most part I noticed people just milling around not buying much in my early AM visit to the Mall in Watertown.
Sure the Canadians are here and it is estimated their treks will drain some $5B from the Canadian retail industry during the Holidays.
The lure of a deal or maybe just wanting to get out of Dodge keeps bringing our neighbors to the north our way.
The latest sales tax estimates for October shows a continued surge in retail here, part of it driven by Canadians.
Glad they like to visit and we hope Canadians enjoy their visits and the Holidays.
