    If you read any complaint site whatsoever, you see that 100% customer satisfaction is not reality. Each business has its distractors. You can take hundreds of complaints at CT and see hundreds of complaints at Walmart, home depot, target, etc. Just proves the point that all these extremely successful businesses stil can't satisfy 100% of everyone that walks through their doors.

    This is just Angry CT Guy under a new name, with their long-standing claim that customers are only complaining because the store is not "perfect" - the same argument Rob Ford uses to avoid responsibility for his activities.

    This absurd theory has already been addressed on this thread:

    The CT Troll is simply trying to distract consumers from the reports of wide-spread Bait and Switch going on at CT stores.

    Don't 'Feed' the Troll!

    I will, as usual, avoid responding to the Trolling aspects of the CTer’s post.

    But it’s important that consumers not be fooled by this flagrant attempt to deceive them, and line the CT’ers own pockets in the process.

    So …

    You’d think the CTer would educate themselves, before posting crap like this. Or are they deliberately trying to mislead consumers?

    Because it isn’t necessary for the store to “attempt to sell something else” – it’s only necessary for the store to advertise when there aren’t “reasonable quantities”.

    Even after the CTer was shown the definition of Bait and Switch at the Competition Bureau site (Bait and switch selling - Competition Bureau), the CT still insists on a false, but more comfortable, definition of this illegal practice.


    Another long-practiced tactic of the CTer, is to divert attention away from the real issue, by discussing a different scenario, that isn’t even being discussed. In this example, the CT’er is pretending that adequate quantities were provided, and begins discussion a normal sale, with reasonable quantities:

The "Sale" is a gimmick to liquidate old stock and favors the lucky ones …. There simply is no perfect solution for this - You sell out when you sell out.

    And here’s other misrepresentations:

    Indeed, the Rain Check is for protection of the retailer, not the customer. It allows the store to (in the words of the Competition Bureau) “avoid liability” for having unreasonable quantities.

    Hey, you don’t want to give the rain check? Fine – but they you are guilty of Bait and Switch, and should face the penalties – your choice, LOL!

    Actually, there is! See the most-viewed thread on this site, https://www.canadiantiresucks.net/ge...-exchange.html

    Returns on unwanted items are a “goodwill gesture”, but that’s something CT’s policies don’t require – unlike all the other big stores.

    Adherence to the law (for defective goods and Bait and Switch) is more than just ‘good business’, yet it’s something the CTer routinely ignore – this posts was just another example.


    And finally, we have one more standard tactic: the CTer pretends that customers who legitimately complain about an genuine incident (in this case, Bait and Switch), are simply being unreasonable.

    So, where is the CTer’s sense of shame, in all this mis-information and mis-representation?

    Totally absent, as we see in their closing remark:

    Well, I think Canadians are, indeed, getting used to the attitude of CT, as portrayed in this post. And if they are smart, they will join the growing number of Canadians who wisely choose not to shop there at all.

    I dont work for them, I just joined the site yesterday and picked my first fight as soon as I walked in the door. But honestly, I saw a thread about ( this one) shortages on sale items and commented. I have run inventories in my own businesses for 30 plus years and have occasionally had an issue like this. But nowhere near like this. I think the problem is with people that have unrealistic expectations about how inventory is moved through the system. A print run for a mass mailout on sale items involving inventories in many locations cannot be store specific. At best you can expect regional targeting but you cannot know what the inventories will be on the day of the sale with precision. If your that concerned put the energy into solving the issue and contract your services to CT directly. Run a test project for cost and obtain the contract if your successful.
    You will have to know every inventory as it stands and anticipate every product count on the day of the sale. Between printing and flyer delivery ( 14 bus days) your accuracy has to be perfect for every store in every region of the country and for every item you advertise. If you can do this right you will have a model worth billions - trillions!
    In the mean time just understand how to play the system. First of all dont sweat the small stuff. CT advertizes the same items at the same time of the year every year and actually this cycle provides for items being on sale every 6 mos so there are generally 2 times a year that an item goes on sale.Knowing this you can plan for the sale. Write todays date on todays flyer and save your flyers sorting them by date. All CT does is remove discontinued items from the template and add others before printing. They check regional inventories and off they go. Now you may not have that item on the shelf in your store but if it shows up on the system its around somewhere. The guy on the floor can check the other stores or you can call any store to find out where you need to be going ahead of time. If you experience bad behavior or mistreatment complain directly to the manager. Otherwise just go with the flow and hide behind your cyber shield and take out your frustrations with similar minded folk right here!
