Got pesos? Go shopping in Texas


Got some cash left over from your last Spring break in Cancún? Go shopping in Dallas! they will happily take your pesos.

Only a few months after Pizza Patrón announced it would accept Mexican pesos as payment, another Dallas-based retailer has followed suit. Value Giant is now taking pesos as payment in all of its stores and to kick off the promotion, this weekend launched a promotional event in one of its stores to introduce the new policy, according to a local Fox affiliate.

Maybe my fellow Mexicans will want to reconsider all the trouble they go through to get here and earn those coveted greens: why bother, I mean, if they can now get their pizzas and their groceries in pesos.

Ah, the wonders of globalization!
