INFOGRAPHIC: Is Cross-Border Shopping Worth The Trip?
With the dawn of another long weekend, you might be contemplating a trip down south for some cross-border shopping. But have you ever crunched the numbers to see whether the savings really add up?

And Huffington Post Canada has put together a comparison of prices at Target stores in Canada versus their American counterparts.
