Canadian Tire - Poor Quality ProductsHaving grown up calling Canadian Tire, "Crappy Tire", due to poor quality of products I vowed never to purchase from them again. However, after a new flagship store opened up in Richmond Hill, I thought that I would give it another try. Over the past 3 years, every product that I purchased from that store was damaged upon opening the packaging, or broke within 30 days of use. My latest purchase, that of an electric fireplace was no exception. Just over 60 days of use, the product failed to operate. It was a gift, so that made it even more embarrassing! After contacting the manufacture, as per instructions included with the product, a replacement part was shipped ; however, did not match. Further inquires concluded that the fireplace was built in 2007 and parts were no longer made for it. So, my story is this: I purchased an electronic fireplace in 2010 (just 3 months ago), which was clearly an end-of-the-line that Crappy Tire had no problems selling in their store. They probably made a huge profit on this clear-out item, which they sold for full retail; and accepted the fact that support was no longer available.
