Yes lets talk numbers....
"Canadian Tire's flagship retail chain sales grew 5.1% this quarter of 2011"
What is there to dispute? sales grew! So either that's more customers through the door or more dollars per customer......OR BOTH! That is factual, verifiable data proving that customers are spending MORe money at Canadian Tire in 2011. MORE, not less.
" The increase was due to higher revenues at its gas stations " This is a statement of an article posted on August 11, 2011 in the website busiiness.financialpost.com.
Most important, the EPS drop 14%, with sales grew 5.1 %.
Financial Post was not try to dispute with you, they just post the facts.
