While the Canadian dollar is trading at a near low, Canadian JC Penney customers can no longer pay with their currency in the Massena NY store which is just a few kilometers over the bridge between Canada & the US.
Cross border shopping has taken a beating due to the low Canadian dollar.
Joey Thomas from the Chain’s PR department sent in the following:
JCPenney stores recently transitioned to a new cash and check system that is unable to process foreign currency. However, our stores continue to accept all major credit cards and the JCPenney Card, for which Canadians are eligible to apply.
JC Penny does allow Canadians to have JC Penny charge cards. So Canadians do you shop at JC Penny? How does it feel not being able to use our currency over at our Southern neighbors? You can post your comments below.
