Thread: Will Crappy Tire Survive The Coming Competition?

  1. #1

    Will Crappy Tire Survive The Coming Competition?

    The Crappy Defenders generally say they've survived the arrival of Costco and Walmart, so they are safe.

    Even CEO Steve Wetmore has been quoting Churchill, in anticipation of the coming onslaught:

    Canadian Tire: Fixing a flat | CanadianBusiness.com

    What do consumers think about the impending arrival of Target and other competitors?

    Walmart, Canadian Tire in Target’s crosshairs | Retail | Financial Post

    Will the influx of American service-oriented retailers going to force Crappy Tire to mend their ways?

    Or will they be destroyed altogether?

    good customer service will blast them away - like a bug being pressure washed off a bumper

    You did read that article before posting it I assume?
    I ask specifically because the report lists 3 other retailers that consumer survey said they will likely to drop, with a much higher percentage then CT. Walmart, Sears & The Bay taking the biggest hit in terms of likely customer loss, Canadian Tire at the bottom of that ranking.

    Nice that you posted a report that supports Canadian Tire
    Thanks for doing that, we appreciate your support

    Sounds like you only pulled the one sentence you liked out of the article, and ignored all the stuff you didn't like.

    So typical of a die-hard Crappy Person.

    Have a look at the many other factors the report mentions, besides just the consumer survey you zeroed in on so impulsively.

    yup, you can always count on CT to twist and misrepresent things

    best to read things for yourself

    just like the crappy return policies they keep lying about

    CT is going to have to clean up their act if they want to hold onto customers

    I zoned in on it for a reason

    You harp constantly that customers are flocking away from Canadian Tire. CT depends on its' customers for survival (duh) , that complaints are on the rise, and that Target will kill Canadian Tire.

    Guess who makes those decisions..........the customers! So if the customers are saying that Target's arrival won't affect their shopping at CT.,.. that's kind of important

    typical of a CT hater. Can't see things objectively

    LMAO!

    Only a crappy tire person could read something with a title "Canadian Tire in Targetís crosshairs", and right away claim that Canadian Tire is NOT in Target's crosshairs!

    What a riot!

    Maybe you need to actually read the darn thing - there's more in there than just the survey.

    Just sayin' ....

    Speaking of reading thought you might be interested in this article.

    Specific notes towards how much of Canadian Tire Martha Billes owns......(previously disputed here)
    Average dealer income and value (constantly disputed here)

    I eagerly await your response on being proven wrong yet again on some MAJOR points of contention here. I suspect that your claims that we don't make big money will quickly go the way of the CPA & SGA arguments, oh yah and the supposed illegal repair policy that got buried as well.

    .....happy reading hahahhahahahahha

    *********

    As far as the previous article, i've read it in the past and refreshed again today after your post. There's lots in the article, it's quite good actually. It clearly spells out the risks facing all Canadian retailers with Targets arrival. You'd have to live in a cave to know that there won't be an impact. it's fairly clear who will likely suffer the largest impact, and it's not Canadian Tire. There is overlap, there will be market pressure and we will feel it. Keep in mind also that this isn't an extra retailer...it's pretty much a replacement retailer. So some, not all but some sales currently going to Zellers will invisibly transition to Target with little impact to existing retailers.

    Hey, if the Crappy People want to bury their heads in the sand, and pretend they can continue to mistread customers with impunity, then they'll just die off that much quicker.

    Woo-hoo!
