    I'm a Proud Canadian, and wish Canadian Tire would stop using patriotism for crass marketing

    So first let me say there's nothing wrong with being proud to be Canadian. I object to for-profit corporations Exploiting Canadian patriotism to spur sales. (not just CT; i got the same problem with tim hortons, but back to CT) There is something absurd about Mastercraft products being...

    Hello, as with everyone here, I've had an inexcusably bad experience at CT. In my case, trying to return defective goods. The clerks were treating me like a liar and a theif. I had to phone customer service on my cell while standing in front of the assistant "manager" while he was texting his...

    Wrenches and square drive

    I think C-T has some of the highest value wrenches and square drive going and has had for years. We're starting to see competition at the mid price range, high quality, level but C-T has owned this space for years.

    Canadian Tire Sucks at Bicycles - Can't return once assembled, won't stand behind them

    This has been on my mind for a while, and with spring hopefully making an appearance in a few months, we can all help get the word out early! This was posted on Canadian Tire's own Facebook page, on this warm-for-mid-January night (only -5!): Jim Hiebert: Watch out for Canadian Tire! I bought...

    My wife purchased a hose extension to clean out the eves around the house. The end came off while using it for the first time after about half an hour. Clerk: sorry, no warranty. I've found most Mastercraft items are crap and not worth buying.

    Mastercraft Compact Li-Ion Drill, 18V

    Mastercraft Compact Li-Ion Drill, 18V Product #54-1207-6 I bought this drill because of the rave reviews it had on the Canadian Tire website. Turns out that certain points (Charge Time - 90 minutes, Torque - 230 in-lb and and Lithium battery life) were wrong or misleading. Because my battery...

    I bought a MasterCraft Air Compressor at the Cambie street store. I took it to Mayne Island to use to pump up a backhoe tire and it broke in 2 minutes the first day of use (second day I owned it). Basically the connecting rod to the compressor piston shattered into hundreds of pieces (yes - I...

    I'm surprised that no one has posted in here yet. Jobmate is a Canadian Tire specific brand. AND, it SUCKS!! Very poor quality items for the most part. Extremely cheap in every way!

    How About Lawsuits Against this Site?

    Just wondering why there were various Canadian Tire logos sprinkled about this site yesterday, and now there is a logo of a "Canadian Tire". Did a tersely-worded e-mail come through from Canadian Tire noting that free-speech, while wide-ranging (note exceptions in the forum rules) does not...

    Lotsa Stuff!

    I find their washer fluid especially excellent. Their Formula 1 synthetic oil? To die for! I also find their selection of sump pumps second to none. Oh, and let's not forget fertilizer and bagged topsoil. Hmmm... I also like their barbeque tools - way cool. I think that's it for now, but I'm...
