Thread: Poll: Does Canadian Tire Suck?

  1. #21

    Re: Poll: Does Canadian Tire Suck?

    I recently went in to the local Bracebridge CT store looking for replacement heads for the Barbecue brushes.
    I found plenty of units containing a brush complete with spare heads, however when I approached the sales assistant and asked for the replacement heads only she replied, “We don’t keep them any more.”
    So when I asked what do I do for replacement heads when I have used the heads contained in the package she replied, “You throw it away and buy a complete new unit,” at which point I responded and lectured her on this “disposable society” and all she did was shrug and walk away.

    If this is typical of CT policy then this world is in dire trouble and I have instructed my family that I would prefer them to only shop at CT as a last resort and once they have exhausted all other avenues.

    Interesting story, yet I have a difficult time believing anyone would ever have to go to Canadian Tire. I haven't shopped at Canadian Tire in over seven years and I get by just fine. Why would there be a last resort? A tornado hitting every other retail outlet within driving distance? Help me out here.

    Its not the sales associate fault they don't make replacement heads. Also CT is hardly alone in this "disposable society" hense "society" it is the world we live in. And why would you lecture her about it? Having someone come up to you and lecture you on someting you have no control over would simply piss off or atleast annoy most people. Now simply shrugging and walking away is poor service hands down and i dont condone it, however what did you really expect her to say? Was your desire simple to complain to her? What could she have really done?

    My local CT seems to suck, according to your poll. 100% suckage, & I'd agree 100%!

    They all suck bad, and the reason that there aren't way more complaints posted is because most of the poor folks being preyed upon by corporate cults like CT are elderly and don't use the internet to voice their gripes, they talk to the guy next door,or the buddy at the local watering hole.But don't be fooled word spreads

    People over the age of 60 in Canada account for approximately 18% of the overall population. Under 20 age group approximately 21% which means 61% of the population ranges between 21 and 59.
    40% of Canadians shop at CT WEEKLY
    Approx 55% of Canadians shop at CT monthly
    So how could the whole business model be built on duping seniors and elderly? LOL come on get some facts not anecdotal evidence.

    This makes me laugh as you have no concept of statistics and don't know what you're talking about. Did you make up those numbers or using CT junk numbers? It looks like it as the number of seniors (definition 65+ and growing) makes up more than 18% of the population you quoted.

    Yes lets look at facts. The original poster mentioned seniors bad CT experiences and why the feedback loop doesn't get back to CT for improvement. Is it your summation that the experiences of the largest pools of the population with disposable income be cast aside? Then retail giants have it all backwards and shouldn't improve the shopping experience of seniors.

    I'm blown away. Maybe that's why you're still working for CT.

    I did not address the original poster of this thread. I addressed the message I copied into my thread which said "most of the folks being preyed upon are elderly" - I specifically responded to his/her summation of our customer base. I did NOt say we are not trying to improve the experience for seniors.

    My demographics facts come directly from Stats Canada 2007 Census. If you don't like my facts, or don't believe them that's fine, but you can't say my facts are wrong and not provide your own source or information. if you want to debate, come armed!

    ..'maybe that's why you're still working for CT"
    I work for CT because I choose to. This company and the positions I have held from small stores to big stores to Corporate at various stages have afforded me a lifestyle that few people have the ability to live. I am very well paid, have ultimate flexibility in my working hours and I get to help thousands of people every year do everything from repair a leaky faucet to buy their kids first bike. Do you have pride and passion for what you do? I know I do
