Wal-Mart is on board with cutting the prices based on Canadian Dollar Stength

So now Zellers and Walmart are giving in what about all those other retailers.
Below is the link to the article:

Wal-Mart Canada reports 'major successes' in C$-related price cuts

Now its time to start pressuring the other retailers to match. If you notice the prices are too high go to Zellers or Wal-Mart and buy it there. Eventually they will all give in.

If you find out about other retailers dropping their prices to reflect price parity email me at chris@clinchportal.com and I will post it here. You can also post it to the facebook group and I will mirror it here as well.

Flaherty and Zellers on Price Parity Bandwagon

Two interesting new items today. Zellers is exprected to lower their prices on US products so they are the same price both sides of the border. Cudos for Zellers finally a reason to shop there.

The other interesting note is this buzz over price parity is finally hitting Mr. Flaherty and he is going to pressure retailers into lower prices. I guess they are realizing how much taxes they are losing with us going south of the border.

If you come across any of these stories let me know by posting them here. I will make sure it gets on my blog too.

Amazon.ca vs Amazon.com

As Gregory Forrest pointed out on the Facebook Group, Amazon.ca and Amazon.com are not offering price parity. We should boycott stores that do this or simply go to the .com site and send in a complaint directly. If we do either or both of these they will act.

Here are two examples that were pointed out:

Examples,
Kids in the Hall Megaset
Amazon.ca $216
Amazon.com $153

Mash Martini's and Medicine
Amazon.ca $279
Amazon.com $170

Thanks Greg for pointing this out. We need more posts like this so we are all aware of the problem.
