Just saw "add to cart" button with the products and availability for in-store pickup.

So they took it away just to bring it back?

It will be nice to order, and not have to walk around and playing hide and go seek for an item... That being said - wonder how long it will take, standing in line at the Customer Service Centre, to purchase the order? Only time will tell!

So it's not full ecommerce? Just in store reseve?

Considering WalMart offers free shipping on all orders that's way too little for me and CT is still dead to me.

Better late than never & they might add shipping later.

Oh good, yet another way CT can irritate and annoy customers with inconsistent policies.

I'll give it a try. My Canadian Tire is monstrous and I hate searching for stuff there. We'll see if the customer service desk for pickup will be a deal-breaker or not.

my CT has a search engine so finding stuff is a breeze and on top of that, a self checkout. it's great they are finally offering some sort of online experience but i have nothing to complain about my CT so another option for shopping is always welcomed

Do you need to pay online before pickup?

It is sad but I haven't shopped at this Canadian retailer in years because of their policies.

Once they asked to look in a bag of mine as I was leaving, they basically called me a criminal. I know the law and told them they have no right to look into my bags, if they wanted I would wait for the police to arrive so that my lawyer has a police report for when we go to court.

Self checkout? Wow I'm surprised. Every CT I've ever been to in the last 35 years has been more locked down than Alcatraz with award-winning engineer-designed sophisticated turnstile and gate barrier system that are the envy of all Federal Penitentiaries. If you go in and refuse to buy anything they make you do the walk of shame by excusing yourself past 20 people waiting in the 2'6" wide passage between cashes with their 2'5" wide basket.

My nearest CT also has self-checkouts. I haven't had any really bad experiences at CT but then I don't shop there regularly. The few times I've had to wait at customer service, it has been fairly slow-going.

I love shopping at CT, always a good experience other then some limited stock occasionally, but staff are friendly and prices tend to be decent.

Likely because they're franchised and the store is owned by a local owner who makes the rules as s/he sees fit.

That's why I was open to shopping there again but only by actually ordering off the website so I could deal with HQ directly.

Wow, over react much? You might want to calm down before you explode.
