Cross Border Shopping

I'm quite familiar with the cross border shopping in the Niagara/Buffalo area. What other good areas are there to shop south of the border within a few hours drive of Toronto?

thanks,

Jasper

I'm not at home, so can't check my maps and info, but in the past I've gone to Erie for the weekend. They don't have sales tax there..or it's much less. i haven't been for a long time.. but it's worth a weekend away. It used to be good to to there for Walmart, but of course, now we have them everywhere.

The Rochester/Syracuse area is supposed to be good as well. This is probably a 3 hour or so drive from T.O.
