I only go to Crappy Tire if I'm in a rush and need something real quick, and if Lordco, Napa etc. is too far away.

The one on grandview hwy is very close to my place so yeah. The service isn't THAT bad based on my past experiences, but I do find the employees there quite clueless.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

Maybe if they actually treated their staff well and paid them a decent wage they'd have motivated employees...

Cambodian Tire is one of those places you hit every other month... but then one day you'll end up there multiple times...

I went there 4x one day when redoing my bathroom... tried 3 different tub faucets and it was the last one that finally worked. Lougheed Hwy in Coq has a great return policy... except they take the defective one you returned and put it back on shelf =)

@ diicii - KMS Tools on the other hand I visit 5 days a week... but maybe because I work there =)

I go every two weeks.

Reason: I actually build things with my hands, change my own oil, repair my house, do my own electrical and plumbing.

I'm a Man. Thats why.

...I don't ask for help from the staff, and I know what I'm buying before I go there. Usually its nothing from housewears.

Sometimes I will buy detailing stuff there.

I hate those annoying ladies that try to sell credit cards.

But, I refuse the bring my car to Canadian Tire. They always try to rip me off. I brought my car in to get my brakes checked a couple of years ago and the douche wanted to MACHINE my rotors for $500. So, I just brought it to another shop and got them swapped for 180.

Did this douchebag explain to you why it cost $500 to machine rotors?

That price seems extremely high.

The fucking theft prevention guy is suchhh a fucking goof at the king George one, I'm in there looking for an exact nut/bolt to match one I brought in and I have a feeling im being watched for whatever reason (OMG! Don't try to steal those .75 cent nuts!) so I look back over my shoulder and there's this old goof like peaking over an isle at me, so I'm like lol ok, I know the guy is the theft prevention guy because ive run into him before there but he obviously doesn't recognize me

So after like 10 minutes they don't have the nut/bolt combo to match the one I brought in, as im walking out buddy stops me and asks what's in my pockets, I show him the nut/bolt I brought in and told him if he didn't think it was my own go match it up in your fucking isle or else go get me the manager, buddy tripped then I asked him his name and told him I was reporting his BS to head office lol, fucking idiot targets me at the King George location when I walk in wearing like 3 bills worth of clothes and some junky walks in behind me in a baggy ass jacket and sweat pants and he just happens to not buy anything right? Lol fuckin pissed me off

should have trolled him. picked up a bunch of shit but before you walked out the door threw it on the ground. they can't do anything unless you actually walk out the front door with the stuff.

LoL, yeah... our school liaison officer told us the same thing... said he's done that before, when he knew the theft prevention guy was watching him, he would very obviously pocket a bunch of merchandise while walking around... and when the store had all the theft prevention team assembled and ready to take him down when he walked out, he would just take everything out of his pockets before leaving.

^ are they allowed to take you down if you are really close to the door
(walking towards it, about a meter or two away) even with the intention to take everything out at soon as you get there?

or can u just sue them if they touch you... just a thought...might backfire?
