Does Canadian Tire make it impossible to find things in store so as to force customers to use curb side pick up?
So - was unexpectedly gifted a large bunch of pears, which resulted in my needing to get some mason jars for canning. Busy time now for canning, so not always easy to find what is needed in stock. Sure enough, according to the website, my closest Canadian Tire (Weston/401) did not have what I needed. However, the Kipling/Rexdale store had huge numbers in stock (we are talking hundreds).
What I hoped would be a quick in and out turned out to be a 45 minute waiting experience.
The Aisle mentioned on website is totally cleared out. It took like forever to get someone to help me, and then even longer for them to find the things I needed (from their employee only storage). I needed a few different sizes, and 1 size could not be found.
To be fair - the employee helping me was really nice. It just seems that the interior of that store (which is one of the smaller stores that opened up decades ago) is total chaos. Products just seem to be scattered everywhere. I've never seen it, but I can only guess that their warehouse area is a nightmare.
I don't go to Canadian Tire that often, but when I do, I almost always have difficulty finding what I need.
In short - it is the sort of store where it pays off to pay someone to find what you need, lol.
