    Crappy Tire Boycott

    I would like to initiate a Canadian Tire Boycott.

    I've purchased one too many defective products where the warranty is not honoured for some ridiculour reason. It is a pattern and I'd like to use this and other forums to urge shoppers to buy their hardware, tires, homeware, gas, whatever.....somewhere else.

    Posting here is preaching to the converted so I'd like to suggest that each reader or poster talk to their friends, family, facebook and linkedin colleagues, work colleagues...everyone you can think of for that matter.

    Wherever possible, on electronic forums of all kinds, please get the word out. Personally, I have had much better luck with Costco which has less selection but far better prices, quicker checkout lines, friendlier staff (albeit hard to find), and they truly honour their warranty without having to bring your lawyer along. CT is stuck in the dark ages and it is time they get a wakeup call.

    I think I will create a web widget that highlights that Canadian Tire Sucks by pointing readers to accurate information on forums like this one and can be easily dropped on your facebook page, iGoogle, mySpace etc.

    What say you? Shall we put the boots to this horrible store?

    I've tried telling people I know and most of them just sort of give me a glazed look as if I must have done something wrong to earn the shitty service.
    You can't win with Canadians. They always side with power and never with the underdog.

    Yeah the crappytire also discriminate people
    Like they advertised the stuff online and dump paper at your door
    They missed print, and when you wasted all your gas go there to get the product and one they said they don't have second they have it they hiden them inside the warehouse
    Third they said it's a missed print and said nothing we could do- to me this a fraud advertisement

    I have wasted my time all three days go around there stores to find the products
    Some of the manager will honour the price but some are real asshole and said call the corporate helpdesk
    The women at the helpdesk also nasty and said nothing they can do and said it is up to manager discretion - I think this is bullshit

    This is my last time ever buy anything from them
    I spent thousand of dollars to supported them and they turned around and said not much they can do

    Tonight I will return all the stuff that I have

    Good luck with those returns. Unless the items are in pristine condition and you didn't violate some unwritten Canadian Tire return policy (such as the wind was blowing from the west), you'll be stuck.

    Re: Crappy Tire Boycott

    I get a good laugh and then, I also shake my head in disappointment. I can believe some of the comments I read but, it's unfortunate that so few live in a "it's about me" world. When I say "few", I mean the ones that have no idea what they are talking about. The days of Sears and Eatons, are over. Even Walmart is not so "forgiving" for those that just have to try something and expect that they can just take it back, because they don't like it. If you all believe that this is the cost of doing business then why have the companies that I mentioned, including Canadian Tire, have had to stop the bleeding. SEARS, in it's hayday, used to have the motto "Satisfaction guaranteed or your money refunded". I remember that you could buy pretty much anything and return it within a year and any BS excuse for why you didn't want it any more was accepted and they gave you your money back. They also had a system of warehouse stores for "gently used" products, trying to recoop their losses by selling under cost, maybe the vendor helped, maybe not.

    When it comes to service though, there is no excuse. People who are paid to serve people have to do it emphatically and be real. Customers who have a problem need to be served professionally no matter what. I am sick of hearing how a person is deemed rude just because they say no however. These are the "it's about me" people. If you have time to write on blogs, you have time to research before you buy. If you need warranty work, hold on to your receipt. That's your proof of purchase. Just because it reads Mastercraft or Motomaster on it, doesn't mean your entitled to get it repaired, replaced or refunded. Don't forget, Canadian Tire employs about 60,000 Canadians throughout their system, not a small number and we all know someone who works or worked there before. If you have a real problem, most stores will make it right but they can smell through BS too! Be real and they'll do right by you.

    Piss on all that. Walmart's return policy leaves Canadian Tire in the dust. Not only that, as a business, Walmart is blowing the doors off Canadian Tire. So tell me who has the model of success here.
    It's your shitty attitude that will be the ultimate downfall of Canadian Tire. They treat people like trash when there is a legitimate issue because they think like you do. If someone comes in with a problem, it has to be BS. It's not about "it's about me" either, although Canadian Tire seems to think it's about them with no problem. Not every customer is out to screw the company they deal with, but you can be sure most Canadian Tire outlets are out to screw the customer.

    Another load of horseshit. I don't feel like getting on the Internet to compare screwdrivers in what should be a simple purchase.

    The people who have the time and energy to post to this site are the type of people Canadian Tire does not need shopping in their stores.

    Yeah it sure takes so much time and energy to post on here. By the time I finish posting, I'm just exhausted. Also, you just made a post, so I guess you won't be going back to Canadian Tire since, according to your own "logic", they don't need you. Give your head a shake, idiot.

    wow bitch fest much... I find it funny that some one will "boycott" a store but continue to obsess about it. And the ealier post was correct all retail stores are tightning return policies... Just becasue you haven't had a problem (yet) with say walmart doesn't mean that there return policies are more slack. Furthermore... the return policies shouldn't be slack... do you have any idea the waste produced in the world by people returning things they decided they didn't want. If an item is returned but cannot be resold it goes in the garbage. The store may get a partail or full credit for that returned item but it is still destroyed and all becasue someone decided they were done renting it and wanted there money back.
