    Interesting 'complaint', Sangria. So, you are dissatisfied at the slowness at which others are addressing the latest barrage of B.S. from the CTer?

    Perhaps you could become part of the solution, instead of part of the problem, and do a little research of your own?

    Anyway, it's moot: we all know that Walmart has awesome policies, especially compared to Crappy Tire.

    The CTer wants to complain about 90 days for a refund? Well, that's 90 days more than you'll get for a Repair Only appliance from Crappy!


    Oh, by the way, Sangria - where are all those "Canadian Retailers Suck" sites you claimed to have links for?

    Just wondering!

    I didnt claim there were all those Canadian retailers suck sites. I said if you google target sucks, then you get a lot of customer complaints. You seem to be dodging Walmarts warranty repair claim by that lady.

    This Sangria person sounds more like CtMe/Lawguy/moaner with every post.

    Actually, here is what you wrote:

    "Many Pages", suggests many sites for many retailers.

    "Retailers", plural, suggests more than 1 retailer, not just Target.

    Besides which (as has been pointed out), if you Googled "Target Sucks", you weren't comparing 'apples to apples', because you will see mostly US complaints.

    This is the same old failed argument, that if any other retailer had even one complaint ever, then it matters not how many complaints there are against CT.

    All I see is a lot of Trolling, to hopefully make CT appear to suck less.

    Now why on earth would you say that?

    There was a slight delay in pointing out that this lady was allowed 90 full days to get a refund (Refund! Refund! Refund!), and still you act as if something is being 'dodged'?

    And you should the time to see what she wrote, not what you want to see.

    She never wrote Repair at all. Or Fix or anything like that - you simply made that part up!

    What did she write? "Replacement", because it had been 90 days.

    And did she even ask for the refund during, the 3 month period? It doesn't say so there, and she had every opportunity - probably only wanted a replacement, and had to go to a different location after 90 days. Which is still much, much better than Crappy Tire, who could have taken 1 look at the opened box (on the first day!), and turned her away!

    The only thing being dodged, is an acknowledgement that the lady had three months to get a refund, and she missed the boat, and instead she got a couple of replacements.

    And it's being dodged that a Repair Only appliance from Crappy Tire would not have been subject to a refunded or even just a replacement, ever.

    (But it is always nice to have a chance to point out how much Canadian Tire sucks, compared to other major retailers!)

    Again, this is the same old argument, that gee, if any cusotmer ever had a problem with any product, then it matters not how crappy the products are at CT. Nice try!


    Anyhow, I liked you slightly better when you were trying to act a bit nicer, as Sangria, than you did under Moaner.

    But you've been basically a Troll the majority of the time.

    No use getting into a war of words. You are not reading my comment the way I meant it. I assumed repair with the Walmart lady because I have never had to go to the maker to get a replacement after 90 days. I just go to where I bought it.

    LOL that's all you'll get with these 3 guys. A war of words.
    Factual information is of no interest to them, especially ones that contain numbers. Sales, profits, share prices, customer counts.... none of it relevant here lol you know those pesky numbers that are essentially EVERYTHING to a business.

    I agree with that. I wouldn't buy those type of items anywhere. I have heard my neighbour tell me about bringing a DVD player back to Future Shop under warranty after their kid knocked it over and broke it. I don't think that is a warranty reason but he did get a new one from them.

    The term "grudge" is interesting.

    At grudge - definition of grudge by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia., this is defined as "A deep-seated feeling of resentment or rancor"

    So, a grudge is a serious thing, yet it is often referred to (especially by the CT person who posts here) as "just a grudge".

    This wording creates the impression that there really isn't a problem, and that anything a person with 'just a grudge' might write can be automatically dismissed, as being exaggerated or even made up entirely.

    But let's say someone actually 'has a grudge against CT'. Why would that be? Something must have happened.

    There could well be cases where someone had unrealistic expectations, and were disappointed in service or support, even though what they received, was typical and reasonable.

    But is that really the most likely case?

    We frequently read stories here, and on other sites as well, where CT Customers are treated badly. A couple of such stories have been posted just in the past day or so.

    Vehicles are brought in for service, are damaged by CT, and then no responsibility is taken.

    Expensive items are purchased, are found to be defective, and then CT refuses to give a refund or even exchange.

    Stingy policies are enacted without any warning or notice.

    Staff are repeatedly rude or even hostile.

    Sales items are advertised, but there is no stock in the stores on the first morning of the sale.

    The list of common, recurring problems goes on and on.

    Yet in the past, CT was formerly viewed as a good store, a Canadian icon, and almost a local resident. Some people are still stuck in the past.

    So when that valued, iconic resident suddenly turns on them of course they feel betrayed.

    And if the conflict is not resolved (as we read over and over again), then a well-justified grudge can easily form.

    Just take a look at the growing list of people who have boycotted the entire chain, permanently.

    So, are there 'grudges'? Undoubtedly with any store, more likely with CT than other stores, and they can be more deeply-seated with Canadian Tire.

    Are they "just" grudges, in the sense that everything the grudge-holder says can be dismissed? Maybe in some cases, but in the majority of cases, they will be based on legitimate mis-treatment, and fully justified.

    It can be "just a grudge', or they can be "a just grudge", in the sense that they are justified, legitimate and warranted.

    Certainly, there is something to be learned by this retailer, if they want to look below the surface, and see why people formed a grudge against them in the first place.

    My guess, though?

    They will continue to dismiss problems out-of-hand, with statements like "it's just a customer with a grudge".

    And the Boycott list will continue to grow ...

    Wow, that's excellent.

    First of all, I don't consider YOU a customer with a grudge. You're just a guy with a computer and a grudge. I don't believe I've ever called you a customer.

    Secondly I laugh every time you use the terms "common" and "frequently" as if you have ANY idea what goes on every day at 480+ stores across Canada. With all the customers, all the time, no matter what they buy. When was the last time you went into a Canadian Tire store? When was the last time you bought anything at a Canadian Tire store? How could you have soooo much more knowledge and experience in the common happenings of our stores compared to.....say someone who lives it all day every day for years and years? Not to mention the other 480 men and women who own stores, and all of our General Managers, Store Managers, Department Managers and floor team.

    Lastly, remember one very important thing in terms of context. None of these people like "Poor April" are coming to you or your website here to share their opinions. They are going to FaceBook. YOu have accomplished nothing with this site. It's a pathetic attempt at best, and with your ongoing copy and paste method from FaceBook you attempt to make it seem like this website is busy, popular and an outlet for consumers.

    Sad sad state of affairs.
