    Re: Return policy

    I wouldn't take Head office word for it!!!!! And the fact that the memo said "specific areas" seems more odd to me!! Could be tho, the consumer protection act is provincially governed I believe. But not the federal privacy act! Only Newfoundland don't have the privacy act. And I can see asking for ID when someone return something because he doesn't like it, and even refusing the return if he doesn't provide ID. But a defective item is the retailers responsibility, thus the reason there's a law about it. I can't see how a lack of ID would supersede that law. Tell you what, I've had the same thing happening to me today, I didn't have my ID on me so blablabla, even after confirming that the product was clearly defective. That's how I ended up on this site. I will do my homework on it, find the legality and if I find out that the law is being infringed, well the law will take over from there! And if its all legal well its all good!

    One thing tho, human right act is the only act who gives us, regular citizen, any freedom!! It is the most attack act in all of parliament, its a constant fight to keep our rights , and I don't know if anybody noticed , were loosing the battle. One way of getting rid of rights is to bluntly disregard them and see if anybody reacts. If there's no reaction its easier for , in example, companies to propose changes to those laws and in return, the politician are less reluctant to pass the law true because it seem that nobody cares and politician won't loose votes over it. Its easy for canadian tire to create this problem of fraud as an excuse to push there policies true, just hire young and inexperience individuals and put them behind the customer service desk! You'll have all sort of fraud going on, don't take a genius to figure that part out.

    I don't think canadian tire makes money, or loose less money, by applying these policies, this site is proof enough. I wonder if canadian tire don't have ulterior motives about this matter! So if this is the case we are all being played, especially you CT managers, you guys are being abused of all the time, I'm sure some of you noticed, just imagine the abuse that you don't know about! I try not to, it gets scary! But anyways if this keeps up no one will be able to return nothing, ever, and you can imagine the crap they'll be selling then!!! Its our duty to make sure that we keep our rights and I applaud anyone that's willing to step up to the plate.

    BTW the manager didn't ask me for my phone # he went strait for the ID so the excuse you gave me for the sign saying "may ask for ID" doesn't fit. Its clear to me its a legal thing. CT wont put there ass at risk here. I believe they passed over the risk to the managers.

    I would like to ask if any managers reading this has any education related to business or there laws other than canadian tire's training.

    Yet another reason I will NEVER shop at Canadian Tire.
    Hey I'm canadian and I agree with you, most canadian are week kneed at lease the English part of it. The french are the exact opposite tho, as a mater of fact I wonder if any CT in quebec ask for ID. I never seen it in new-brunswick!!

    Re: Return policy

    Here's something interesting. PIPA is Personal Information Protection Act. Here's an interesting note you find in the act.

    Under PIPA, an organization may not:
    ■ refuse to supply you with a product or service because
    you do not consent to the collection, use or disclosure
    of your personal information for purposes that are not
    necessary for the transaction
    ■ use or disclose your information for any purpose
    other than that to which you have consented (except
    in circumstances where no consent is required)

    I do believe a return is a service!!!!

    Here's something else :

    An act is done willfully if done voluntarily and intentionally, and with the specific intent to do
    something the law forbids.
    If you are convicted of an offence, fines are up to $10,000 for individuals and up to $100,000
    for organizations.

    That means a 10G fine for managers and a 100G fine for CT

    I strongly recommend to managers to stop this practice, cause I will sue!!!!

    I encourage anyone to do the same!!

    Whatever. Nothing will happen to us ever. I've been with the store for 10 years now and have refused every return and exchange when I'm behind the counter. Package unopened, wrong part, broken part, defective, whatever. I don't care. We keep the money and thats how we get our bonuses. The store owner is so happy with me that's he's got me training new people how to say no. Do you really think that a multibillion dollar store like Canadian Tire won't put up a fight to some retarded complaint from a government. We do that all the time.

    So if you come to my store for a return, I'll definately say no and have security write you up and move you off the premises

    I am much relieved that you are at least honest about one thing and that is you and the store you work for don't care. I have only one problem with your "NO" policy to every item why don't you just advertise it. This way you will be doing something else in store and there will be no customer service desk saving your store and store manager tons tons tons of money......as a strong man if you can say "No" to everything why not advertise it also in and out of store.
    Its a shame if you can't .... becuse then you be less of a business and less of a man.

    Re: Return policy

    You jerkoffs make me laugh. You can complain as much as you want about canadian tire and the way we do things. The fact is the store provides jobs in a lot of communities and puts food on alot of tables. I put a stop to the rest of you idiots who want to short change the store however you want. In ten years I've never had my hours reduced or had to go on pogy. In fact have been given steady raises, bonuses and promoted a few times. The same can't be said for the rest of you white collar jerk offs out there. How's that university degree holding up for ya? Can you even pay your bills? What's that? You've lost your home and had to move back in with your parents? Your wife divorced you, awww so sad.

    "Easy Returns" - The 17-Step Process

    When making a purchase from a Canadian Tire store, please follow the simple, 17-step process to ensure an "Easy Return".

    1 - Make a note of the 7-digit Product Number of the item you wish to purchase.

    Note: Do NOT purchase the product at this point in time. Purchasing is Step 12.

    2 - Using the Product Number, check either CanadianTire.ca or Customer Service to determine the "Canadian Tire Warranty".

    3 - If the "Canadian Tire Warranty" is "Exchange Only" or "Repair Only", thoroughly research the product to determine whether it might be unsuitable for your use. Don't rely on what it says on the box - that won't help you - but independent reviews can be useful. If it might possilby be unsuitable, do NOT purchase the product from Canadian Tire, because you will NOT be able to get a refund. Instead, purchase it from any other major retailer.

    4 - If the "Canadian Tire Warranty" is "Repair Only", thoroughly research the product to determine whether it might possibly be defective. If there's any possibility that it might be defective, do NOT purchase the product from Canadian Tire, because you will NOT be able to get a refund, or even exchange it for one that works. Instead, you will have to wait for it to be repaired, which can take weeks. Sometimes months. Instead, purchase it from any other major retailer.

    5 - If the "Canadian Tire Warranty" is "No Warranty", do NOT purchase the product from Canadian Tire, because you will not be able to get a refund, exchange or repair. You'll be completely stuck with it. Instead, purchase it from any other major retailer.

    6 - Do NOT rely on the "Easy Returns" statement on the web site or at Customer Service. This has nothing to do with you. Remember:

    - Only purchase an "exchange only" or "repair only" product if you are positive it will be suitable for your use.
    - Only purchase a "repair only" product if it cannot possibly be defective.

    7 - Consult Customer Service to determine the number of days you will have during which you can get a refund on an unopened, sealed, unused and fully re-sellable product. The best case is 90 days, but it can be as little as 7 days. Or, zero days for "exchange only" or "repair only".

    8 - Locate the item in the store, and thoroughly check the adjacent aisle and the shelf itself for any notices that may warn you of special restrictions or policies that are not otherwise apparent.

    9 - Select an item from the store shelf. (But don't buy it yet - only 3 more steps to go!)

    10 - Thoroughly inspect the package for any damage that may indicate that the product inside may have also been damaged. If the product is damaged, you may not be able to obtain a refund or replacement. Only select an undamaged package.

    11 - Also, thoroughly inspect the package to ensure that it was not previously opened. If the package has been opened (even by someone else), you will NOT be able to get a refund for the purchase, should you change your mind about the product. Only select an unopened package.

    12 - Purchase the item and obtain a receipt - finally! (But there are still 5 steps to go!)

    13 - Immediately check the back of the receipt for any special restrictions or policies that may not have been previously mentioned. Have a look around the cash register, too. You just never know where they may be hidden.

    14 - If the cashier hands you a Warranty statement, you are probably in trouble. Big trouble. Proceed immediately to Customer Service and try to get your money back, if it's not already too late. It probably is, though.

    15 - Hold on to your receipt for all you are worth. Never, ever, ever lose it. You will be so screwed if you do. Totally screwed. Maybe make a photocopy of it just to be safe. Don't leave it on the glass. What did Ijust tell you, huh??? You almost lost it already.

    16 - As soon as humanly possible, attempt to use the item. Right there in the store, if you can. Maybe you'll have to wait until you get to the parking lot. Because, if it is defective, you may have a brief window of opportunity for a refund or exchange. You are probably screwed, though. Sorry!

    17 - Next time, just purchase it from any other major retailer. Who needs all this hassle?
