    Canadian Tire Complaints on facebook - People Hate Crappy Tire!

    I wanted to rename the other "CT facebook" thread, but it looks like I can't do it. So, I'll just start posting on a new thread. The old thread with the litany of recent complaints is still here...

    So, I went to canadian tire a week or 2 ago and bought this bike: Ironhorse 26-in Jumpstart 2012 Full Suspension Bike | Canadian Tire It was on sale for $199.99. Everything seemed alright on it so I paid for it and started heading back home(on the bike). I made it about 10 minutes away from...

    ratchets, sockets, etc

    CTC used to say it's warranty on tools is "forever" but forever now has a time limit or at least it requires a receipt. No more replacements without a receipt. Now who keep receipts for their tools for years??? Are they mental? You'd think the fact you present them a broken part would be...

    Simonize - just another private label??

    After getting stung on a Simonize pressure washer that failed during the warranty, then failed just outside of the warranty (now sitting forlornly in my car port) I am told that CT bought the name for Canada and it's sold only by CT. It was cheap and I guess the name of the crapshoot is 1. you...

    "Repair Only Warranty" - No Refund, No Exchange

    A Canadian Tire policy that seems to cause a large number of complaints is their “Repair Only Warranty”. The name doesn’t sound so bad. It seems like it’s only telling you something about the manufacturer’s warranty. After all, how could a “Repair Only Warranty” doesn't sound a whole lot...

    Sale of Goods Act

    Has anybody heard of this before? I came across this on Ellen Roseman's "On Your Side" blog (here: Your right to a refund, credit or exchange | Ellen Roseman). Apparently, "the Sale of Goods Act says that merchandise must be fit for the intended purpose". Basically, if you buy something, then...

    Customers expect employees to know everything!

    Employees would need several University Degrees to know about all the products being sold in the stores. Canadian Tire does not employ professional trades ie. plumbers/electrians etc. They hire people, give them no training (learn as you go) and customers think employees should know...

    Returned goods put back on shelf to be resold (to me)

    It seems almost everything I buy at CT has been returned. I consider these products to be used, not new. I bought a cot. Good quality, on closer inspection, blond hair boot print and dust. Hey, unexpected overnight guests? Buy, no rent, cot at CT and return it the next day. It's back on...

    C-T garage tried to rob my mother

    So this is the story: My mother had car problems where her jeep would overheat. Once she realised that it was happening with her car, she stoped and found a way to bring it over to C-T to get it checked. A mechanic looked over it, did a "Hydro Carbon test" and from that, he said that the rad...

    Motomaster Eliminator Life time Guarantee

    Back in 88 or 89 I believe it was, Canadian tire offered a life time warrantee on their Motomaster Eliminator battery. There were no conditions (that I remember) such as "as long as you own the car", in fact I bought the battery over the shelf and did the installation myself , so there is not...

    Canadian Tire Fails at Tires

    Background story: Bought used 944 with winter tires on it. It came with a set of summers. I put the summers on but they were so bad I thought the car was going to rattle itself apart. Initial plan was to drive to the US on said crappy tires and get new ones there for about 1/2 the price of what...

    Atv 3000 super winch

I now have 205 Kms. on it and a failed attempt at an ATV 2000 super winch which I threw in the bush. In the...

    I work at a CT part-time and while you may joke all you want about the employees and the store (I've heard it all), it just so happens that most customers, probably the ones who post on this site, and either incredibly dumb, lazy or just plain retarded. Everyday I bombared with moronic...

    Customers Suck

    Are all consumers ignorant, self righteous, demanding, thieving, dishonest people who thinks every retailer owes them something? Or is it just CT customers? Cause seriously most of the complaints on this site are just silly or obviously exaggerated and very one sided. And do they have nothing...
