It's a big day for cross-border shoppers.
Changes have kicked in today that raise duty free limits for most trips south of the border.
Shoppers who go to the U-S for between 24 and 48 hours can now bring back up to 200 dollars duty free compared to 50 dollars before.
The limit for trips between two and seven days outside of Canada has doubled to 800 dollars.
Some shoppers say the rule changes aren't enough and are calling for the government to allow Canadians to bring
back duty free goods after a same-day excursion to the states.
Business owners say the rules go too far and will only encourage shoppers to spend their money outside of Canada.
