You can call me a noob if it's obvious but why do jackets cost like $50+++ in Canada than in the US? I've tried to figure it out but I just don't get it. CAD and USD are woth the same now. Let's take Orage. It's a Canadian brand and the Xavier Pro model costs $330 in Canada instead of 280$ in the US. Thought someone on here would know and could explain me. thanks
Always notice that... Oakley Corked $400 in Canada and $330 in U.S. I think the reason is companies are cashing in big time, look at magazines always 2-3 dollars more in Canada, but we won't stop paying it even though our dollar is almost at parity. Basically companies know we will still pay it and are getting a lot more revenue.
disproportionate purchasing power parity indexes, it's like this for all items
take into consideration that wages in canada are usually higher than in the US, i have no idea what minimum is in the US, but i think it's a lot lower than the 12 bucks an hour or whatever it is in Ontario
maybe because alot of companies are american and so when they have to ship it to canada the store has to pay more for shipping duty and doller change (when canadian was lower) and still make a profit.
so canadians are used to paying more. but when there is a canadian company they make it cost more because we are used to it anyway people not knowing its a canadian company will just think its becuase of shipping and such nonsense.
