It appears some of our neighbours to the south, aren't too happy with the number of Canadians coming to shop.
A new Bellingham-based Facebook page is being panned by those on both sides of the border.
The page -- essentially -- complains about the number of Canadians "clogging up" the local Costco store...
From parking, to long line-ups -- more than 2,000 people have signed up.
It's something Bellingham Chamber of Commerce President Ken Oplinger calls disgusting.
"Most people in Whatcom County not only know, but can cite the specific benefits... the fact that there are a lot of services we're able to provide here because of the tax money raised by Canadians who shop here, that we wouldn't be able to provide."
Although Oplinger can't put a dollar value on the extent of Canada's impact on the local economy, he says it's "significant."
