It's working fine for me, although I'm on a desktop. Maybe try deleting your browser cache?

I gave up and got the items from Lowes instead.

I didn't see this thread until after. I never thought to change browser, I just signed out and back in again.

Was able to browse earlier using Chrome, but couldn't add anything to cart. Cleared cookies and cache and now I get the "We're quite busy" message.

It's similar with Firefox in that I can browse, but can't add to cart.

5pm the site magically worked, a bit sluggish but searches worked and I could add and purchase items.

their system must be unprepared for extra traffic because of the Ontario store closures effective today. Their decades long stupidity in not fully embracing e-commerce has come home to roost.......

Canadian Tire, as I know it, runs on Azure for the most part so I don't know why they're down. Maybe it's a logistical blocker more than anything (eg they can't keep up with filling orders like with online grocery pickup)

I was told there was high traffic on the website and a lot of people made/were trying to make orders online.
Their system was down yesterday and won't be up and running until 6pm. They are only starting to process the online orders now.
I asked because I made an order after midnight on Saturday.. well Sunday. They confirmed they received my order request this morning and will be processing it sometime today.

Unless they recently upgraded their backend web systems, its a piece of crap but achieves a number of IT management check boxes.

Site still indicates they are busy so try later. It is 10:24 pm in eastern Canada. They should be in bed by now, not placing orders for Tires.
