DETROIT (AP) - Businesses in the Detroit area are opening their arms to Canadians ready to open their wallets.

The visitors’ bureau points out that Detroit’s 6-percent sales tax is lower than some other shopping destinations. It also says duty-free allowances and Canadian tax exemptions on purchased goods increase with the time spent in the Detroit area

The campaign also features a chance to win a $500 Visa gift card, two-night hotel stay in Detroit and two show tickets.
