NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. -- More and more Canadians are crossing the border to take advantage of bargains at Western New York businesses this Black Friday.
According to a study from the Bank of Montreal, up to 25 percent of residents in Ontario said they would shop in America this holiday. Many of those will travel from the Toronto and Niagara areas of Canada into Niagara and Erie Counties.
Friday, 2 On Your Side spoke with many Canadians at the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls, the Walden Galleria and other local shopping plazas.
Canadians said the savings they find in the U.S. far outweigh their expenses.
And instead of just travelling across the border to shop and head home, more Canadians are staying overnight and even all weekend.
Cheryl Cooper was among a bus load from Toronto that stopped by the outlets.
