Canadian Tire Ranked As Canada's 'Most Respected' Big Store Brand

A new ranking of Canada's most respected general merchandise retailers has put "national icon" Canadian Tire in the top spot.

The survey — which was shared on August 10 — asked over 3,500 Canadians to score how much respect they had for each company.*

It found that Canadian Tire stores provided "high-levels of retail service across a wide-range of locations and platforms," including throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Of the 13 big box stores ranked, Costco, Staples and Best Buy came in second, third and fourth place respectively.

At the bottom of the list were Walmart and Scotts Discount, both scoring over 50% per the ranking's "respect score average."

Earlier this year, a selection of Canada's biggest brands were ranked on their "trustworthiness" and Canadian Tire was rated in the top ten, alongside companies like President's Choice and Costco.

Fall has officially arrived in Canada, and I for one am trying to make the most out of the weather before it gets to be below freezing. If Ontario's winter weather is actually supposed to be some of the worst in 25 years, then you'll want to spend as much time outside as possible right now.
