    You also said "get some facts and not anecdotal evidence". Hard to believe you're in retail with that one but then again that can explain why your stock is worth less than what it was over two years ago. Also the reason why you could never out grow "crappy tire"

    Your facts are wrong. You're claiming an awful lot of shoppers during recessionary times even when your own corporation has lowered it's guidance for the past two years. Just to humor everyone, using your numbers ( 40% of Canadians shop at CT weekly) you're claiming that CT has 13.6 million shoppers a week? Breaking it down some more that means each store ( 475 stores from CFA) has over 114 500 shoppers a month. Thats incredible considering 114 500 is bigger than the population of some municipalities that has a CT.

    I also find it hard to believe that you're working in a corporate office with flexible working hours. That is contrary to what 99% of corporations are like i.e. very long hours even for senior staff. Unless you're a very jr executive thinking that $18/ hour is a lot of salary and like working weekends too. Stick to bathroom and seasonal items - your passion.

    *snicker* this one takes the cake. You were too kind on Retail douchebag. According to his numbers 40% Canadian shoppers weekly would mean the entire population of the USA would have shopped at a CT twice last year or the equivalent of over 700 million shoppers a year lol. CT's got a lot of nitwits lol.

    Approx 55% of Canadians shop at CT monthly

    The flyer can usually be viewed at the store's web site. There are different flyers in different areas, so you need to enter your postal code.

    Remember that sometimes items scan at the regular price, even though the flyer or the sign on the shelf shows a lower price. In these cases, remember to tell them they have to give you $10 off the lower price, or to give you the item for free if the lower price is less than $10.

    See http://www.cfig.ca/docs/gov_EnglishCashierDocument.pdf for details.

    You might want to look at last week's flyer before you go. If items are still marked on the shelf with last week's sale price, the above discount/free rule applies, too.

    Also remember that stores have been known to arbitrarily refuse returns on some items, even if they are in unopened boxes, so you might want to only buy things that you can confirm are defect-free before you leave the store.

    The best option would be to not buy anything from CT.

    If you're curious, drop in at your closest CT and look at the flyer. If something strikes your fancy, by all means open up the package to make sure everything's there. Then open another and another. Make sure all the pieces are there. Don't worry, they have clerks who look after that.

    Once you've made up your mind, leave the store and buy it elsewhere asking the other store to match the sale price Peace of mind.

    You don't ever want to buy anything from CT because if you need to make a return or exchange they make you give them your government ID, and charge you with fraud if you don't. Once they have your name, your phone number, address, from your drivers license lets say, you'll be an open target for identify theft forever. Kiss your bank account and credit history good-bye! Do you want that hanging over your head?

    Retail is notoriously easy for getting other peoples info. Is it any wonder why so many retail employees are involved in fraud and identity theft!

    Lesson for the day.
    Browse and open at CT.
    Buy elsewhere using price matching. Bring CT's flyer.
    Return and exchange with peace of mind knowing that you didn't need to give out your private information.
