    I have not shopped at Target in Canada yet just in the states. I just used it as an example as some posters here assumed that new competition would impact Canadian Tire's sales. I simply pointed out that the red triangle posted results that did not match thAt assumption. I saw the CEO of target even say they were below their expectations in Canada so far. I find all big box retailers do not match up to the service of the small shops.

    Sears selling knock offs of brand name goods? Here this home brand company, Canada Goose works so hard for decades to create and maintain a strong brand, and Sears goes and pays an offshore company to produce a cheaper version. How can Sears get away with deliberately misleading the Canadian consumer?
    If Sears really cared about their customers they would ban this disgusting practice immediately.

    Canada Goose sues Sears for selling imitation jackets | Money | Toronto Sun
    Yet another set of serious misrepresenation by CTMe/Lawguy/Moaner1.

    And what's with a discussion on a anti-Canadian-Tire site, claiming some vague accustations about Sears Canada? Wrong place, buddy!

    Besides, hasn't Sangria provided TheMoaner with links to all the "Sears Canada Sucks" sites by now?

    (Oh, wait. I forgot. There haven't BEEN any links provided to such a site, and there probably isn't much of a site anyway, if at all. Besides, isn't "Sangria5" just another Avitar for "CTMe/Lawguy/Owner1"?)

    Now, as the story clearly states (for the benefit of anyone who hasn't actually READ IT!), these are simply claims by Canada Goose, and are in no way proven, at this point.

    But here's the kicker: this is all based simply on Sears selling coats with "a logo in a circle".

    That's it.

    That's what The Moaner calls "deliberately misleading the Canadian consumer" and a "disgusting practice".

    Yup, logo in a circle. Pretty devious, LOL!


    As Sears states, "There are quite a few brands out there that use their logo in a circle and Canada Goose cannot claim it invented that."

    We will have to wait and see what the courts decide.

    But it's always worth pointing out:

    Even if Sears some day sucks as much much as Crappy Tire?

    Crappy Tires still sucks!

    I also find it hypocritical, for a representative of Crappy Tire to be pointing fingers for alleged wrong-doing, when CT has such a long and horrible track record in the ethics department.

    Here is a small sample of the nefariousness they've been up to:

    I don't think Sears will make it. They just sold off some pretty major locations.

    hmm interesting read about the so called 'knockoffs and how vile a practice this is for one product'.as far as i can tell the logos are different anyway.just a thought hmm what about just about every mastercraft product.arent they cheap knockoffs of superior brands,hmm maybe different colour,but if youre telling me mastercraft invented the socket set,cordless drill,reciprocating saw,angle grinder,skill saw,etc.etc.etc.,you get the picture.if youre as outraged as you pretend to be then maybe your store should look at removing ALL of your knock off brands forthwith.hmm lots of empty aisles left!

    I did EXACTLY what you did. I picked a product that has poor ratings based on customers who purchased them and were unhappy. Then used your own term " if they cared about customers they wouldn't sell a poor quality product".
    As if a failed product really meant a retailer didn't care. Lol.

    But you're not intelligent enough to know you're being mocked with your own words on your own website. Lol. Now that's hilarious. Might be a good inidicater as to why consumers dont post here. This site sucks at everything it's meant to accomplish. Lol.

    There's no misrepresentation. I simply posted what customers said about a product.

    Lastly I noted you skipped over the lady who had a few of the same units fail and they STILL made her wait 4-6 weeks to get it from warranty depot because it was beyond 90 days at the store. Now how can that be when repair warranties are illegal and you're sure all of these other retailers will just exchange or refund during the warranty period? Care to address this or just ignore ??


    Two words come to mind when I read what Owner1 has written here.

    Petty, and immature.

    Over and over again, the Sys Admins at the CT Facebook page write, “”.

    Yet we see very little in the way of meaningful responses.

    One of the chief complaints about the Crappy Tire stores, and one of the main reasons consumers have given the store this nickname, is the low-quality products.

    The disappointment of Canadians is only worsened by the name of the store: “Canadian”.

    It is no accident that consumers expect there to be more Canadian-made products at this store, than at other stores.

    Of course, we are all familiar with the other nickname: “China Tire”.

    This reflects the number of cheaply made products that Canadians have become used to seeing in these stores, which is widely reported, and widely commented on, especially on the CT Facebook page.


    And how does the CTer respond to having their own words thrown back at them?

    At having “Customer Service is very important to us” challenged, on this site?

    Did anyone stand up and take notice of these common problems, at their stores?

    Were any earnest attempts made to correct this long-standing problem, and address the systemic problems?

    Nope.

    Instead, the CTer spent Saturday afternoon, doing a copy-and-paste of random customers comments on random products from random competitors.

    The sweet irony is, they found a bunch of examples that merely highlight just how poor Canadian Tire’s customer service, product quality, and return policies are, compared to every one of their competitors!

    (Oh, and let’s not forget their misrepresentation of a squabble between two other Canadian companies – as if they don’t have legal issues of their own!)

    There is not much made in Canada anymore. Most of the manufacturers around me have closed. Most big companies have moved their manufacturing to China, Mexico and other low wage countries. I don't think we'll get those manufacturing plants back.
    I see h8tr skipped over Walmarts warranty repair. My question would be do the manufacturers in China, Mexico or others have repair sites in Canada or even parts if they are made outside of North America?

    Regarding manufacturing, if a retailer wants to procure quality products, and have decent return options, they can do it - it just might cost a bit more.

    But if a retailer wants to specify low quality levels, and cheap out of return options, well, they can be an much like "China Tire" as they want!

    Crappy Tire looks more and more like The Dollar Den every year.
