What's the Canadian version of Chuckie Cheese?
The Canadian version of "Chuckie Cheese" is called "Chuckie Cheese".
While there are a very few differences in restaurants and retailers and products sold between Canada and the United States, they are actually quite limited in number.If it's a national retailer in the USA, chances are overwhelminly likely that they are also nation retailers in Canada, too. There are exceptions -- but thay are exactly that, exceptions.
This makes sense. People seem to think that the countries we each live in are commercially integrated East to West. They are not and never have been. All commercial integration in North America starts by running North to South, not East to West. North America is a very large place, and it's easier to reach people going north and south than it is to span the continent East to West. This is especially so given that 85% of all Canadians live within 200 miles of the Canada/US border -- and the large majority of those are concentrated in a handful of easy to reach cities. Nearly a third of all Canadians live in the sourthern part of Ontario along the Great Lakes. One in seven Canadians live in Toronto.
We're huddled pretty closely together up here, breathing on your border and are in the business of doing business with Americans. That's been the history of both countries since the Civil War. It's pretty easy to reach Toronto from the north-east and mid-west of the USA. Iowa? Not so much.
Which, when you stop and think about it, makes a lot of sense. After all, I live a lot closer to Boston, New York City, Detroit and Pittsburgh then you do. Hell, I bet I'm closer to Atlanta and Miami then you are, too.
