There's usually as many Canadian plates as American ones at the Seattle outlets.

Bellingham would be nothing without Canadians injecting money into their economy.\

Think about how small the place is and yet they have an international airport.

Back in the day when the Canadian dollar was hovering around 60 cents,Bellingham was like a ghost town,yet still those Americans that live there complained about us not shopping there due to the poor exchange rate.Point of the matter is,they will bitch about anything just for the sake of bitching.

Probably referring to Asians and Indians but I have a friend who's white that goes down to shop a few times a month with his wife and child and he's been honked and sworn at because he has a BC plate. I'm sure race might have to do with some of the backlash but I think in general all Canadians are been targeted by some of these idiots.

It really is a shame that Canadians are boosting their sluggish economy by coming down and spending money and this is bloody thanks we get. They really need to build a large shopping complex in Blaine.

News :: The Northern Light Newspaper for Blaine and Birch Bay WA

Quote:
A Canadian investment group, collectively known as North American 6666 Investment (Birch Bay), LLP signed on the dotted line on Thursday, October 25, and purchased the 140,000 square foot retail center for just under $8 million dollars.

The purchase included most of Birch Bay Square – with the exception of Jack in the Box, Bob’s Burgers & Brew, or the Windermere building – and a 16.7 acre parcel north of the mall. The retail center, located five miles south of the border, was built in 1993 and was originally known as Peace Arch Factory Outlets. The mall was acquired by the Ware family of Mount Vernon in 2005, and subsequently given a multi-million dollar makeover.
Maybe there's potential for Birch Bay Square?

Totally don't remember where this place is. Is that that terrible outlet mall right after the border? Like with the Levi's store? I think?

I used to go to Walmart and Costco in Bellingham, and I'd always park as far away as possible. It's easier to park, and you don't come across asshole Americans.

Now, I've seen East Indian and Asian families arrive in vans, they'd stop in front of the store, unload their 19 family members while holding up traffic, then do some fucking terrible driving to park like a retard. And before you call me out on stereotyping or racist, everyone knows it's true. White people have a bit more class. And I'm Asian, and have drilled it into my parents. It shouldn't be Americans complaining about Canadians, but rather people complaining about arrogant uneducated fucks who think it's perfectly ok to inconvenience other people just so they can save some time and money.

Not "sympathazing" with the 'muricans who key our shit and such, but this whole USA vs Canada thing is stupid IMO.

Anyway, now I just drive an extra 15 minutes and down to Burlington. Bellingham is a clusterfuck to drive through anyway, especially around Bellisfair.

It's on the right hand side, about a 10 minute drive along the I-5 from the border....the really deserted outlet looking place.

Any highlights to Burlington? Places to shop and stuff?

I don't mind the extra 15 minute drive.

Speaking of clusterfuck, Bellingham is a nightmare on Saturday's when trying to exit onto Meridian Drive.

Typernammer: ^^ birchbay outlet?

I'm sure the racist thing does exist... And when meant 'canadian' its probably asian, indo, and pretty much anyone whose not white.
Recall a visit to nordstrom seattle where salesguy was rude and didnt want to serve asian customer, kept walking past pretendig to cough and no greet or hello. My thought 'no problem dude, you lost
my business, I will buy jeans or whatever next door at macys lol...'

Was waiting for a parking space with my signals on at the Bellingham Costco today. Guy was backing out of his space and as soon as he put his car in drive and started driving away, a burgundy ricer Audi A4 without even looking, drove right into the spot.

Not sure if hungry fatass American wanting churros, or a Canadian hater.

it totally exists, depending on what I'm wearing that day, I swear some stores dont even greet me. However once I start up a nice conversation with them with proper English they usually cool. There's always soo many asians/ EI talking in their language very loud down there and this just totally adds to the stereotype.

lol, Birch Bay Square. Pretty much a grocery store, Jack in the Box and Bob's Burgers. Back in the day it had Levi's, Converse and Champion.

New WalMart, Target, Costco, Coach, Nike, Old Navy, Olive Garden, Ross, Best Buy. There's also a mall with a Macy's, iirc and a bunch of auto supply stores. It's more like Burlington/Mt. Vernon area.

I think the asian/indian stereotype has some validity,

when you go into costco you see majority of indian people literally crowd the milk like ants to sugar,

and when you go to the gas pumps you see asian's in big vans with 10 jerry cans.

Not sayin whiteys dont do this shit too, hell I jerry can as much as the next guy. but its undeniable that the majority is brown and asian at the milk and gas pumps.

i'd be frustrated as fuck too if I saw that shit every day in my town.

I also see BC lisence plates hard park ALL THE TIME, like its fucking crazy how many spots get left open because BC people take 2 of them up at the mall, one can only assume c-lai.

the locals cant even get on the highway without 100 BC lisence plates backing up the roads for 30 minutes.

I totally get where their coming from,

but fuck em, we want our cheap dairy and gas, we will invade as necessary.

I kind of understand the frustration of Bellingham residents as well. This is the same reason why I never shop at Superstore or during sales at other stores typically. The crowds, hoarding behavior and rudeness to me just isn't worth it to me, I understand some people are on a tight budget and I don't mean to sound elitist or a snob but to me saving a couple bucks isn't worth it to deal with all that and throw civility out the window, I honestly rather pay more to avoid those crowds and behavior.

Doubt that will happen. No one above the border actually wants to live in Bellingham/Blaine. There's nothing for them there, the place is just a shopping resource for people looking to save some money.
