How did Canadian Tire surprise us?
Canadian Tire traffic counters records over 10,000 visitors in and out of both entrances daily. Management analyzes this raw data and converts it into tangible information such as the amount of prospective customers.

The downtown location actually affects the range of products available at this specific store. For instance, Canadian Tire tries to limit options on gardening, snow blowers, etc because such activity is often obsolete downtown. However, other branches do provide those options.

Relative to other stores in the Eaton Centre, Canadian Tire does have large capacity to display its products. Though it actually share its warehouse space with another subsidiary store, Mark's. Therefore, a very efficient or a lean production is emphasized here
#1. Company Name & Location
Canadian Tire is a retailer NOT a manufacturer
#6. Canadian Tire's inventory control system
Canadian tire uses AS400 inventory control system created by IBM.
AS400 is one most reliable software available to manage inventory control.

It can also easily integrate with other computers on a multi-platform network .

The software incorporates the universal product code of each product into the system to easily track.

By scanning the UPC or typing it in the systems, the number of items in stock, location, and necessary number to replenish the shelf is accurately presented.

The system detailed inventory search can easily provide information and images for undecided customer to find the product suitable to their needs.

Canadian Tire is very pleased with the performance of the system and has no plans of changing to a new one in the near future
#7. Quality Control
Canadian Tire does not use statistical process control nor is it ISO 9000 certified.

Canadian Tire actively works with supplier’s quality control to insure better quality products on their shelves.

Before Canadian Tire orders merchandise an initial sample of the merchandise is required.

Employees are thoroughly trained and take mandatory classes annually on quality and safety.
