The Duty Free Shop at the Blue Water Bridge has ample parking areas, including 10 segregated spaces for truck stops located just to the south (left) side of the building.

Visitors can use our on-site ATM for last-minute cash needs while travelling. The ATM dispenses Canadian currency only. The current ATM withdrawal fee is $2.00 and the maximum amount per transaction is $400.
Customers may pay for their duty free purchases with either U.S. or Canadian cash, by credit card or Canadian debit card. A competitive exchange rate is offered on store purchases paid for with U.S. currency. Customers paying in U.S. dollars will receive U.S. change in return.
Traveler caution – Though rare in occurrence, ATMs require periodic servicing or experience down-time due to banking system updates. We have no control over when this occurs. We suggest that customers — particularly truck drivers — plan ahead and do not rely solely on our ATM for currency when crossing the border. Some U.S. combined credit/debit cards do not work with our ATM.
