I recently ordered tires through Canadian Tire for my car. Since the tires weren't in stock, the service department looked for them and told me that a different Canadian Tire had them in stock. This being said, they would only take a week to come in. I had to pay for the tires "up front". It is now close to 3 weeks and still no tires. I am not impressed to say the least.
My wife says I spend too much time in my Canadian Tire store. They have so many products and services to offer that it becomes my one-stop-shop, and where I can find emergency items. It is sometimes my sporting goods store, car repair facility, and household products shop. Thank you Canadian Tire.
