    Can I assume Canadian Tire has taken over this site?

    Posts are being moderated and there is nothing new since 2010? Why not just remove the site from the Internet. This makes C-T look really, really bad. I hope this is just someone else trying to make C-T look bad. That's jackhole behavior. If C-T deserves to be publicly burned, so be it. If...

    Battery Problems

    Simply put, I bought a battery for a motorcycle. It lasted only a few months so I took it back to CTC in Kingston (I had the bill) and complained about its poor performance and stated I wanted a replacement. I was told they'd have to test it and it would cost me etc etc. I said that's up to you...

    What People Want to Achieve Here

    Once in a while we get some young clerks or cashiers posting here. They often seem genuinely surprised that many people deeply despise a company that they apparently think is simply awesome. The problem could be one of perspective. Possibly they are genuinely unaware of the wider context of...

    phones, website and service counter NFG

    1. No one answers the phone: I've been put on hold for 10 minutes. After several repeats I asked for the manager - same thing and line hangs up twice. 2. Tire website doesn't work and employees all agree. 3. Big sale on oil and filters in flyer with no limits. I picked up 6 jugs of oil but...

    How To Spot Those Who Use Disinformation

    25 Disinformation Rules!!! 1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don't discuss it -- especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it's not reported, it didn't happen, and you never have to deal with the issues. 2. Become incredulous and...

    Professionals? Yeah, right!

    I recently (Aug 16th/11) took my 2004 Infiniti G35 in to Canadian Tire on Douglas Street in Victoria, B.C. so it could be checked out for both Provincial and Federal Inspections. I purchased the vehicle from the USA and in order to have it legally registered in B.C. I had no choice but to go...

    Crappy Tire's Financial State

    It's good to see some financial information that isn't distored by the Crappy Tire Defenders. It turns out that this "cash only" buy-out of Forzani wasn't really "cash only" after all. Crappy Tire's debt went up from $2.3 billion to $3.3 billion. There was assumed debt and transaction costs...

    Owners/Managers Seeking Information and Opinions From Customers

    Hi. There isn't a single "Q&A" thread, where the Crappy Tire people can post questions for consumers to answer. I keep seeing these kinds of questions scattered around this site, so I thought it would help if we had one place for them. For instance, "What are the top 20 retailers in Canada"...

    Collecting ID and Personal Information

    A common topic of discussion is CT's practice of requesting and recording personal information, before processing a return. The official web site on Returns, Refunds & Exchanges (Returns, Refunds & Exchanges | Canadian Tire) states: "Your name, residence address and phone number will be...

    Returning Unwanted Goods - CT Has the Worst Policies

    A topic that deserves its own thread is the Canadian Tire policies for the return of unwanted goods. Note that this is NOT the same thing as a consumer returning: - A defective product. - A product that is not fit for its intended purpose. (Defective and unfit products are discussed under...

    Does Crappy Tire Lose Money Giving Refunds?

    This is a recurring topic, and right now there are two different threads with two similar discussions. Consumers understand that simply processing a refund will cost the store some resources, but people who say they represent CT deny that this is significant. Other consumers say it's only...

    Products With "No Warranty" - No Refund, No Exchange, No Repair (As-Is)

    It comes as a shock to say this, but we now know about another Canadian Tire policy that is even more despicable than the dreaded “Repair Only” policy. (If you’ve been following this site, you may be aware that CT designates some products as having a “Repair Only Warranty”, and that these are...

    Why Do CT Defenders Post So Many Lies Here?

    I find it fascinating that those who appoint themselves as defenders of Canadian Tire on this site post so many bald-faced lies. What could their intention be? Are they simply being argumentative, and like to stir up controversy (tolls)? Do they think their bogus claims will convince future...
