We know this because we read over and over again, about people who find out, after even years of faithful patronage, that they are one purchase away from being screwed over on a defective or unsatisfactory purchase.

    Then it's all, "Holy Crap! Does that place every SUCK! I'm gonna tell everybody I know!"

    There are reports of some individual stores that don't suck as much, so customers there are happy. But it just takes a new, greedy owner or a an incompetent manager, and all bets are off.
    On one hand I would agree and on the other the comment is so general it could relate to any and all businesses.

    Ah, such a typical Troll post.

    Sounds so innocent. Gee, aren't all stores the same?

    But Ct is such a unique place - let's give them full credit for their anti-consumer innovations!


    - Canadian Tire has the dreaded Repair Only Policy for a very wide range of products, including all types of outdoor power equipment.

    - Not just these two items, but also: snow blowers, electric generators, compressors, weed eaters, etc.

    - Also for ordinary household appliances, such as blenders, vacuums, irons, etc.

    - CT also sucks because they have an "Exchange Only" warrantly on many items that escaped the Repair Only category.

    - CT even has a large number of items that are "No warranty", meaning they won't even repair it.

    - CT has a long history of terrible customer service, supported by survey after survey, and by the tsunami of complaints on their own Facebook page, each time they to for a Spamming of Canadians.

    - CT has a long history of terrible auto service, shown by one hidden camera investigation after another.

    - And let's not forget their unique Dealer arrangement, which allows Joe's Tools and Sportswear, 'Featuring Crappy Tire Products' to disguise itself as an outlet of an actual retail chain, with a genuine 1-800 number.

    So, overall, we can conclude that Canadian Tire still sucks far more than Home Depot, or any other major Canadian retailer.

    Not that Troll would ever admit to that fact here!

    there sure was a flurry of typing yesterday by CTMe/Lawguy/Moaner. seems to me they are totally losing his sh*t, Ford style!


    What really seems to be setting him off, though, isn't the mounting evidence that his beloved money-machine is falling into disfavour with the consumers he clearly hates.

    No, I think it the fact that his greed is being highlighted here, by his very own words!

    Way to throw yourself under the bus, LOL!

    Would The CTer care to make some confessions about alcohol, drugs or hookers, before the spittle dries of his chin?

    Re: Grudges, Complainers and Other Retailers: Canadian Tire Still Sucks!

    It is always so interesting, to read how CTME/Lawguy/moaner sees the world.

    Recently, we got to read how The CTer thinks consumers go about deciding if a retailer sucks or not.

    Apparently The CTer thinks consumers should focus on financials! As in, they should check whatever financial statements are available. Maybe they should read the business pages, and definitely consumers should check out the stock price of the parent company.

    What an idea! Perhaps consumers should consult a forensic accountant, before they buy a tube of toothpaste!

    Well, I guess that's what CTme/Lawguy/moaner does before entering a store, but I use a different approach. Surprise!

    I look at the quality of their products.
    I talk to friends, coworkers and family about their experiences.
    I read online product reviews for things they sell.
    I might even watch their Facebook page, to see what kind of complaints are being posted, and whether anything is being done about it.
    I also follow the business pages, especially consumer columns. And blogs on consumer issues.
    TV programs and news articles often explore automotive service and consumer surveys.
    Plus I have my own personal experiences to go by: how I was treated in the store, and how they responded to past problems.

    Oh: one more thing: I like to know what kind of return policies the store has! Very important (but far from the only factor!)

    (And nobody who reads this site should have any doubts that CT has the WORST policies!)


    So, CTME/Lawguy/moaner thinks their approach is the most common, and I am alone on my methods.

    Perhaps The CTer has spent too many hours behind the counter, trying to figure out how to get inside those wallets that they are so focused on!

    Frankly, I generally scan these litanies of 'dribble', looking for anything that might mislead a na´ve consumer. If I find any, I point the interested reader to the evidence refuting the bogus claims.

    You see, I long ago recognized that CT-Me/Lawguy/Moaner1 will post just about anything. We've all seen cases where The CTer "can post lies faster than consumers can post the truth".

    (Obviously, if someone isn't going to let facts or reason interfere with what they will write, it's not hard for them to crank out reams and reams of such nonsense. But that doesn't mean anyone else is obliged to read it, let alone respond to it!)

    There's also frequent misrepresentations about what consumers have posted. But there's little point in highlighting the truth that's there for all to see.

    And lately there's been a resurgence of the chest-pounding posts, about how great and awesome the Red Triangle of Crap is - generally without even a lie to back it up.

    Nothing to see here. Move along. "Scroll, scroll, scroll", as I'm sure most consumers do.


    But once in a while, there will be something especially ridiculous - which I then make a sport of ridiculing. It's great fun!

    For example, the above post. I had decided to circle back, and see if I'd missed anything that might actually fool people, in the recent rants by our own version of Rob Ford.

    And I stumbled on the above gem.

    "LOL Hilarious", as The CTer used write, when posting as CT Me, I think.

    Saw Walmarts 3rd quarter results today. It does not look like they did very well in sales and new customers both in Canada and the US. Looks like employee hours will be cut yet again.

    Re: Grudges, Complainers and Other Retailers: Canadian Tire Still Sucks!

    It's been a long tradition of CtMe/lawguy/moaner1 and now Sangria to post results of companies who operate in diverse countries (some not even operating in Canada, or not even retailers at all).

    The goal seems to be, to make CTs own results look better.

    As usual: Nice Try!

    It took about 29 seconds to dig up some actual info. for Walmart Canada - and it looks even better than Crappy!

    Walmart Canada had sales growth of 4.9%! Woo-hoo! Compared to a mere 2.9% over at CTR.

    Sure, profits were down, but that's due to the "Aggressive expansion".

    Watch out, Crappy People! Walmart Canada's comin' to show you how it's done!

    For those of you who are learning to disregard the crap posted by CTMe/Lawguy/moaner/sangria, here's something to look at instead:

    Wal-Mart Stores Management Discusses Q3 2013 Results - Pre Recorded Earnings Call Transcript - Yahoo Finance



    Moving to Canada. Walmart Canada had good sales growth and grew operating income faster than sales. Net sales grew 4.9% in the third quarter compared to last year. Comparable sales increased 0.7% with average ticket up 1.7% and traffic declining 1%. We had strong comp sales in food and consumables and Health & Wellness, but weakness in Hardlines and entertainment. Gross profit rate increased due to improved initial margins and lower markdown activity. However, expenses grew faster than sales, primarily due to preopening costs associated with aggressive real estate expansion plans. We've completed 49 projects to date with 24 projects to be completed by year end. We now have 30 of our 39 Zellers to Wal-Mart Store conversions opened and the early results are encouraging. We're pleased with the way the Canadian leadership team managed this conversion process and it appears our new customers are, too.

    Canada is heading into the golden quarter with plans to make this a memorable season for Canadians. Canada will kick-start the season with Black Friday and Cyber Monday promos as we did last year. Our Top 20 Toy digest will give customers a best-in-class offering for the holiday season gift buy and Our Finest private brand selection, a new Walmart Canada brand that was recently named by Progressive Grocer magazine as Best New Product for a Mass Merchandiser, will be a favorite for festive celebrations.

    Hey, just a couple a quick questions for the person now posting as "Sandria5".

    Um, where did you see results that suggested Walmart Canada didn't do well in sales? New customers?

    And where exactly did you get the idea that "employee hours will be cut"? Or did you actually just pull that out of your *ss?

    And is it the same deal with your claim that Walmart Canada employees were recently cut? Hmmm???
