    Stanley Fat Max 400 Stud Finder

    My wife bought this product almost a year ago. It never worked correctly. We have so many unnecessary holes because of it's inaccuracy.

    Defective Air Nailer Canadian Tire Won't Refund

    We tried to return an air nailer that has never been used. Why has it never been used, because it does not work. When we went to return it, we were told it must be taken to a repair shop. What a stupid deal. Return a brand new tool to a repair shop, and DO NOT RETURN TO STORE!! What is that...

    Canadian Tire Lasalle #230: rude manager treats the customers as criminals

    Well, the staff at the Angrignon store (Canadian Tire Lasalle #230, 2221 boul.Angrignon, Lasalle QC) was rude and extremely unfriendly as always. I went with a couple of items and two coupons to the cash and, once I paid for the first item, I gently asked the cashier to pass the second one. Note...

    Officially the TWO worst Canadian Companies.

    Officially the TWO worst Canadian Companies: Canadian Tire and Air Canada. These two constantly appear on Marketplace and other such programs delving into consumer complaints and they usually prefer to "no comment" when pressed for an interview to correct problems.

    CT is both good and bad

    CT has good selection of products but its service is lacking. Being screwed over by big box stores is almost a way of life these days the forum is way of letting them know what their weakness's are and hopefully fix some problems. Rules for working at CT NEVER OFFER TO HELP NEVER MAKE EYE...

    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...

    Motomaster tires

    Motomaster tires sold and fixed by canadian tire are the worst tires on earth. They are worse than useless. Motomaster tires will be worn out in just 1 year by running just 5000 kms only. I strongly advise that nobody on this earth should buy these f----in tires from this f-----in canadain tire.

    Can't return anything

    I had the worst experience trying to return anything especially at this Canadian Tire location. They go out of their ways to tell you why they wouldn't be able to return the product. Now the latest excuse is that the product has to be in its original, "unopened" package. I have never heard of...
