We just brought in a shipment of glass and tools from the U.S. last week. All sorts of really cool stuff, still being unpacked.
The first thing Mikey does (actually the second- he reads the daily comics first as he eats his Coco Puffs) is price out the exact cost of the shipment using the U.S. dollar that he paid for the shipment with. He doesn't price out the shipment based on some mythical U.S. dollar costing $1.00 Canadian, because that's not what he paid..
We continue to be puzzled as to why our OOCSGS still maintains the need to charge a 4.9% surcharge on all their non-Canadian sourced goods.
You would have thought that they might actually price their goods based on what they paid for them. Not on some mythical dollar value that we haven't seen in months.
Oh yeah, while the surcharge we must pay (and of course pass on to you, sorry) today stands at 4.9% the dollar today is at .9878 U.S.
That's a difference of less that 2%.
