    Heather Store review

    I'm a bit surprised that this place is still in business. They already cut down their hours for about half the week. Things are often out of stock, sometimes permanently. I went in there once to buy a vacuum that I saw online and there was only one left, but it looked like it had been returned or tampered with, so I refused it. When I asked one of the employees when they'd get a new shipment, I was told about 2 months. Extremely understaffed on weekends. When there are good Saturday door crashers, the line-ups often take up half the store as there is only one cashier working. If the other side opens up, they only accept credit cards for some reason. Process returns/exchanges in the same line-up (used to be at the counter in the back) wasting a lot of time for people waiting with purchases. However on weekdays, this place is completely dead and you'll be able to get in and out in no time (provided that they have what you want in stock).

    Hello,

    I know of this store and know this store is a Size F store. As such, this is a tiny store in comparison to the average Canadian Tire store. It would not surprise me to understand that one cannot expect a tiny store to have the same amount of space for products as an average store 3-4X's larger in size.

    I believe this store is the smallest store left in Canada and as such, they likely would have went to processing returns at the cashier as many complaints were made of doing returns at the parts desk and then having to wait in line a second time to have the voucher attended to.

    An "F" store would more than likely not have room for a separate customer service desk where only returns are done like in a regular sized Canadian Tire. It's either wait in line at parts, (holding up customers who want assistance with parts or customer service), then wait in line again at the cash register. Or do it all at the cash register. If they were to make 1 cash lane a returns only lane then the other cash lane would be aggressively lined up. When you are dealing with a TINY store, you might want to take some understanding of the severe lack of room and cannot be compared to an AVERAGE sized store.

    If there is no float available at the time, many stores will just jump on a till to help relief the cash lane if there is currently no cashier signed in. Hard to take CASH, and DEBIT without any cash, or CTM in the till.

    If a store like an "F" store has cut hours and employee's it's usually because of the lack of customers. And as such, likely would not have a bunch of workers on the floor if there is hardly any customers.

    A business that makes money = a business that survives. I'm sure you've seen many that have closed up trying to satisfy losers like you. How's that 9 - 5 going? Or am I already paying your way via the government?

    Figures CT would think that the only way a business can survive is if it sucks. They can't even envision operating a store that doesn't suck. Nice going, CT!

    Any successful businesses out there that doesn't have a complaint or sucks.com site dedicated to them? I guess some
    people just don't like success. Of course, usually it's the unsuccessful people, for what their opinion is worth.

    I checked out the rating, and the report of how much it sucks, and then the CT explanation of exactly why it sucks as much as it does.

    Yes, this store surely does seem to suck.

    And CT surely does seem to be OK with it sucking, too.
