If you’re crossing a border you can shop at a Duty Free store. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been away or how long you’re planning to stay. If you’re Canadian or American (or International), you can shop before you enter the U.S., before you enter Canada or both. Of course, we’d prefer you plan to stop at our Store on the way into the U.S. but if it doesn’t make sense for you this trip, well that’s okay, please come see us again soon.
The Duty Free Program was set up by the U.S. and Canadian governments to make shopping convenient for travellers, create additional jobs and to further bolster the countries’ economies. Typically, Duty Free Shops sell great brands at a significant savings vs. regular retailers, offer a selection of unique or hard to find products and provide great service at a convenient location. All Duty Free shops were not created equal and have different ownership so you may find some (vast) differences.

How much you can buy tax and Duty Free depends on how long you’ve been away. The allowances are clearly laid out throughout our store and on our website, but you can also ask our staff if you’re not sure – they’re always happy to help.
