    Re: Stupid return policy to hide employee theft?

    I enjoy watching the CT Owner/Liars being humiliated on this forum as much as the next person.

    However, I wonder if there isn't a sneaky strategy at work by the Owner/Liars to bury any useful consumer information in an avalanche of bs, lies and general insults.

    Kind of like what happens at the Returns Desk at a CT store.

    I mean, they don't seem to be even bothering to post plausible lies anymore.

    It must be nice for the site owners if they get revenue based on site traffic, though.

    do you really believe, i mean truly believe that this site is doing any damage to canadian tire or even to a specific store? do you think that the multi millionaire canadian tire dealers are concerned that a dozen disgruntled customers come here to bitch to each other, and argue with everyone else?

    Good point. How much have you donated to this site's business? Just out of curiosity.

    Luckily for the average Canadian, it's not necessary for this site to "damage" CT, because the corporatoin is systematically destroying their own customer base, through their own crappy policies and a voluntary descent into the trap of discount retailing.

    Jordan Timm's insightful article sums up CT's sad decline and the poor prospect in an increasing competitive marketplace:

    "Canadian Tire: Fixing a flat | Managing | Strategy | Canadian Business Online"

    The financial arm seems to be making up for the poor retail and auto service performance, but how long can that last?

    Despite the hysterical claims of the CT Defenders who desperately post here, there are serious problems, with a poor "Customer Experience" as a key element.

    Based on the response we've seen on this site by the CT faithful, their smug and self-righteous attitude, let along their strategy of 'attack the customer', may seal their fate more decisively than will Target or other US competitors.

    No, the value of this site isn't in damaging the self-harming CT corporation.

    It's for those unfortunate customers who don't get the news in time, and fall victim to the various in-store scams. For them, this site is becoming a valuable resource for consumer remedies.

    Just Google "pressure washer refund" or "repair only warranty", and see what comes up at the top of the list.

    But the greater benefit of this site will hopefully be to spread the word about CT's uniquely devious and exploitive policies, so that innocent consumers learn to take their business elsewhere, before falling prey to the greedy Owner/Liars.

    Anything my fellow posters and I can do on this site to help our fellow consumers is time well spent.

    Ctc had same store sales increase last year whereas Walmart has had 6 straight quarters of declines. That is a key measure of shareholder value. Single digits for ctc, not great, but why do they continue to grow?
    What are the other retailers doing to give a better customer experience over CTC? What are the key differentiators?

    At least read the article in question before displaying your ignorance.

    You are an embarrassment to CT Defenders everywhere.

    Have you even bothered to read the "Repair Only" thread? Quite a few stories there about other retailers. Lots that CT can learn from the success stories at the other end of the parking lot.

    Do a little research - you'll be less humiliated in the future.

    My research is sound. Are you denying that CTC had same store sales growth n 2010?

    Denying the truth doesn't make it a lie.

    This reads like a confession by a CT Owner/Liar.

    Their interpretation of "consumer information" is automatically "damage to canadian tire".

    Nice world view.

    It helps explain the seige mentality, and explains the guilty mind of the owner/liars who are knowingly exploiting the very people who are (mistakenly) keeping the store alive.

    There are lots of consumer sites on the web and some are down right excellent. This isn't one of them. All the sucks.com and sucks.org sites seem to be a business looking for either donations or advertising dollars. No one here is fooled by the real motives.

    You must be the grand chief wizard at the Canadian Tire's returns desk to come up with that statement lol.

    black is white, union middle class sucks. 50000 employee disciples take your meds, 500 mega mega millionaires stores, don't pass go when green, i'm a lawyer, no pro cable puller, that is all.

    You can deny the truth all you want, but in the end the results are always the same. The customer gets screwed over and grandma ma Beatrice, on a small pension is still out money. All because or your 'truth'. But that's great news because mega mega millionaire Canadian Tire store owner scraped that little extra bit with more bad consumer policies and added that to his pile of money. It'll make for better numbers on the slide show for the next investors conference.

    It'll be a hoot watching your 'success' formula gain even more traction and see what happens to you in the next few years. I wonder what happens when Walmart's quarters start picking up again and Target is done eating up Zellers.

    liar liar canadian tire. It's catching on, the kids are starting to use it now and know we don't get there for a good reason.
