    We all know how much the Crappy People love to compare themselves to stores in countries where the economies are in bad shape. I guess it creates an illusion for them, that their stores don't suck as much.

    Well, here's some good news from south of the border. Well, good if you aren't a Crappy Person!

    Survival Plan B: give less $$$ to the dealers ...

    Canadian Tire Seeks Savings Ahead of Target Arrival - Businessweek

    My favourite part:

    "Canadian Tire consults with dealer committees for major decisions, making it harder to remove underperforming dealers, and provides an incentive for dealers to order a surplus of sale merchandise and sell the extra at regular price after the sale ends. That increases margins at the company’s expense"

    Perhaps those dealers actually have too much 'skin in the game'?

    Canadian Tire has not done well in years. The business is struggling. The Canadian Tire stock price today is the same as it was 7 years ago. The poor service they offer is only the tip of the iceberg.

    I see CT is still shifting the focus away from their Red Triangle of Crap stores, and continues to buy companies that suck less than they do.

    I look forward to the day when there are no Red Triangle stores left at all - just the smaller off-brand stores that don't rip off customers quite as much, LOL!

    Yes, it seems acquisitions are a central part of their plan to hold onto some market share, somewhere.

    Also in their plans is Survival Plan C: "fire a bunch of executives" ...

    Canadian Tire cuts senior jobs to reduce costs ahead of increased competition

    Who's gone? Some familiar names!

    Glenn Butt, executive vice-president of customer experience and automotive

    Pat Sinnott, executive vice-president of technology and supply chain

    Mike Arnett, executive vice-president of corporate development.

    Kristine Freudenthaler, senior vice-president of technology

    Angela McMonagle, vice-president of investor relations

    bahaha I love this.
    The Facebook copy and paste, well atleast there's some legitimate complaints in there, and as usual some grossly exaggerated ones. NEVER have any flyer products in stock? right. 50 pages, and nothing in stock? I GUARANTEE that's not the case in any store anywhere in the Country. Some items sold out or late to arrive, for sure that's going to happen. The claims of never have anything in stock, well, you'd be pretty foolish to believe.


    Now onto the best parts of everything i've read of late on here. The pure sillyness of H8R and Challenger

    1] survival plan
    2] attempt to hold onto some market share somewhere
    3] the day when there are no more red triangle stores left
    LOL

    You just don't get it do you? This is not a dying brand. We are not closing stores. We are not losing money.
    How about an education of the retail landscape in Canada.

    Lowe's massive enter into Canada plan has failed and stalled. If they don't manage to acquire Rona, they will leave Canada. Rona's future is cloudy at best. Sears Canada 3rd quarter "improvement" was to get to a $20 million loss with sales down somewhere around 6%
    These are some serious once powerhouse companies that are performing terribly on a regular basis.
    While the likes of Home Hardware, Walmart, Home Depot and CTC perform well.

    let me know when you acquire anything closely resembling an accurate understanding of business, retail, Canadian Tire or anything in the neighbourhood.

    Well would you look at that! It was one "buy our stuff, we are Canadian" commercial, just like I said. The commercial isn't even running anymore. The xmas campaign is now running, and there is no "buy our stuff, we are Canadian" in them. Simply a focus on certain gift ideas.

    Re: Will Crappy Tire Survive The Coming Competition?

    Interesting theories from The Moaner on how maybe other retailers suck almost as much as Crappy Tire's stores do.

    Too bad he didn't bother to post it to the Facebook discussion thread, LOL!

    Also interesting theories on why Crappy Tire is NOT a dying brand.

    I guess The Moaner isn't one of the top executives who were let go recently.

    LMAO!

    Really?

    Which "gift idea" is the Runway/Sam commercial focused on?

    On second thought, don't bother. Your half-baked theories are just boring.

    At least they let Butt run a store - but I bet the next batch of guys don't do any better with "customer experience" and "automtotive".

    Hilarious!

    Hey, Moaner:

    Where's all that evidence you said you had about every retailer of automotive batteries in all of Canada?

    And where's that info. about the changes of policy on how refunds are given?

    Still waiting!!

    LOL!
