BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Whatcom County retailers are watching the strength of Canada’s dollar as the Loonie fell to 93 cents this week.

The Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce says Canadians will keep coming south to shop.

Interim Director Bill Gorman says the Loonie doesn’t have to be that strong.

He says that may change if the Canadian dollar dips below the 90-cent mark.
